For all the information about what is going on in the village of Alnmouth visit:
This is also well worth looking at:

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.

Boat trips to see the Puffins, Seals and Sea-birds can be taken from either Amble (to Coquet Island), Craster or Seahouses (for the Farne Islands):

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:
