The main tourist site for Northumberland can be found at:
For Alnwick Castle & Gardens the website is below (Make sure you’re sitting down when you get to the section on admission prices though…)
However, in my humble opinion, Cragside House outside Rothbury, a further 10 minutes drive on from Alnwick, is a day much better spent! As a National Trust property it’s free to NT members.
Warkworth Castle is also well worth a visit. It is an English Heritage site, so again free to members of EH.
Golfers are more than well served in the village, with Alnmouth Village Golf Club being the oldest 9 hole course in England and an 18 hole course at Foxton half a mile outside the village.
Puffin Cottage boasts a couple of photographs of which I’m immensely proud – the ‘rime ice’ pictures you’ll see on ‘The Cheviots’ section of this site. For the official Met Office opinion on how this amazing phenomenon occured, visit:
