What You'll Get


Your scenic drive follows the North Sea coastline before crossing the Scotland/England border into historic Northumberland. Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty you cross the Pilgrims Way onto Holy Island where there’s plenty of time to enjoy a short walk to 16th century Lindisfarne Castle, visit the Priory where the famous Lindisfarne Gospels were created and enjoy the spectacular views to Bamburgh Castle and the Farne Islands. Holy Island was settled by Irish monks circa AD635 and from here the Christian message spread throughout the north of England. In 793 a fierce Viking invasion of the island heralded the beginning of the Viking Age.
Arriving at Alnwick Castle around lunchtime you’ll stop here for a minimum of two-and-a-half hours. This amazing castle, one of Europe’s finest, has been the centre of many historical events – from bloodthirsty battles between the Scots and English to the intrigue of the Guy Fawkes plot. Its sumptuous setting and exquisite architecture has famously been used as a filming location, including the Harry Potter movies (Hogwarts) and Downton Abbey. Visit the new Downton Abbey exhibition featuring costumes, photography and props from the series and enjoy ‘Harry Spotter Tours’, revisiting some of your favourite scenes. Next door to the castle is the world-renowned Alnwick Garden, several acres of beautiful parks, woodland walks and the Poison Garden.
The return home takes you through beautiful Border country and Northumberland National Park.
