Mini guide to Alnwick

     

The town of Alnwick lies in the heart of Northumberland, England's most Northern county and possibly one of its most scenic. The district of Alnwick is characterised by rivers, streams, hills and moorland, as well as ancient historical sites from the Bronze Age, Roman forts and famous walkways such as The Devil's Causeway.

Alnwick Castle attracts thousands of visitors each year. It is a foreboding medieval castle with stunning state rooms which contain fine examples of period furniture and classic paintings by Canaletto, Van Dyck and Titian. The castle is also famous as a principal location for the Harry Potter films.
The town is a treasure trove of interesting and unusual buildings and well worth the time spent investigating its streets. Narrowgate is an impressive gothic building with an exceptional history. Brizlee Tower is another example of gothic architecture, and Hulne Park is rewarding.

Walkers and hikers are very well catered for with The Devil's Causeway, the Penine Way and St Cuthbert's Way offering walks for every age and ability and providing picturesque scenery. For a relaxing lunch or dinner there are a number of welcoming, traditional British pubs boasting a range of real ales and malt whiskies.
