Overall rating

The driver was very knowledgeable in history and competent in imparting it. The journey itself was pleasant however the castle I thought magnificent and surrounds of castle picturesque. The garden a d eating areas superb, not to mention tree house restaurants. My very first viewing of tree house restaurants with sway bridges should one want to use themSet in idyllic surrounds. Later we stopped outside the Armstrong’s castle. The driver drove the bus excellently well.

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.

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.

Beautiful countryside in a minibus, driver was also our guide, interesting information on history and good music. It was raining and windy,but afrerwaeds the castle went to the centre to a local restaurant for a nice meal. The way back was nice as road was by the coast. Day went very quickly.

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⭐️.
