Alnwick Castle & Gardens
Today we make our way to the medieval market town of Alnwick which still retains many of its cobbled streets, narrow alleys and fine stone buildings. We visit Alnwick Castle, one of the finest medieval castles in England which famously features as 'Hogwarts' in the Harry Potter films. In the afternoon we visit The Alnwick Garden, known locally for its Grand Cascade of 120 water jets, one of the largest treehouses in the world and of course gardens. There are plenty of refreshment opportunities before returning to our hotel.
This morning we have free time in Newcastle to explore the city's many attractions. View the famous Tyne Bridge, explore the museums and attractions or head to The Quayside, one of the city's most bustling areas packed with restaurants, bars and cultural hotspots.
Lindisfarne Castle & Bamburgh Castle
After breakfast we take a drive along the scenic heritage coastline and cross the tidal causeway to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, home to Lindisfarne Castle. We have time at leisure to explore and enjoy lunch before we visit Bamburgh Castle. Perched on rocks at the edge of the sea, the castle boasts magnificent views of the Farne Islands. We call at the pretty fishing village of Seahouses en route back to our hotel.

We say farewell to our hotel and begin our journey back home.
