Newcastle (England) Alnwick Castle Excursion Reviews

This was an awesome place to visit.
Sail Date: June 2017
This was an awesome place to visit. Loved the fact that the castle is still a "family run castle" and that they opened it to visitors. We had a great time and were able to enjoy a few moments without rain!

Ship tour to Alnwick castle (pronounced Annwick), the second largest inhabited castle in Great Britain after Windsor, inhabited for 700 years for the Percy family, now Dukes of Northumberland. Site and furnishings are gorgeous, and often used for filming including as Hogwarts and for the Christmas episode of Downton Abbey! (You can do this by car yourself). Castle has kids’ areas, including archery and games but ESPECIALLY quidditch broom riding lessons (more fun to watch than participate). The gardens are about a 10 minute walk away and lovely. Ship offers a shuttle to an outlet mall and to the train station at Tynemouth, which is charming! On the north sea with an ancient monastery and huge flea market on Sundays. Read Less
