Alnwick Castle: Tours & Tickets
What people are saying about Alnwick Castle
It was an interesting journey filled with intriguing history
I would had preferred to have had the entry tickets for Alnwick included in the total price instead of having to pay more upon arrival. The Lindisfarne visit was a bit shorter then what i would had liked but still offered a brief insight into the history of the island. The tide might have been the the cause for that though. Alnwick offered nice scenic views and interesting objects on display in the Fusilier museum and the stateroom. All in all, a good day.
Excellent use of time so that the driving did not dominate the day. The driver's almost non-stop patter was irritating at times but I appreciated that he gave honour to the history and events that caused Lindisfarne to be named Holy Island. The priory was inspiring and the Alnwick gardens were beautiful and well worth the fee, even more so with the 10% reduction for being on a Heart of Scotland tour (which actually toured places in England :)
The drive to Holy Island, along the coast of the North Sea was just beautiful. Alnwick Castle was very impressive and so were the gardens. The down side was the lack of time spent on the Island. There was concern of being trapped by the tide so we were there for just a very short period of time.
We had a great time exploring northumbria, holy island,& Alnwick castle. Our guide, Andrew T., was a storyteller. He has an excellent knowledge of history in Scotland &England. It was fun listening to him. I would also give him a five⭐️.
Angela was an amazing guide. She was very funny and knowlegable about the places we went and the places we passed along the way. She had so much personality and really made our tour exceptional.
