Alnwick Travel Guide: 41 reviews and 110 photos

While staying in the NE of England for a week I did a day-trip to Alnwick in Northumberland. The idea was initially to see the new garden attraction there, but the weather was good, so a visit to the castle and the town (all within walking distance) got added on. The gardens are great - well worth travelling to see if the weather is fine, and together with the castle and the town, it's a great day out.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Easy to see in a day
  • Cons:Quite a way from anywhere else...

    I've never heard of a "poison garden". Of course they could probably call it "Harry Potter's Hogwarts Botanical Park" and sell more tickets.
