An expensive day out for two adults unless you are able to visit multiple times per year which we aren’t. Nice to look around. Tours too infrequent. State rooms good to look around but given the number of staff standing in the rooms, they could...More

One of our favourite places so far. Beautiful & a really enjoyable day. We did the film location tour & loved watching the broomstick flying activity. A must see for any Harry Potter fan.

A visit to Alnwick castle was always somewhere I wanted to go having done the gardens some years ago. Stunning castle inside and out with plenty to see inside. Some amazing personal family items so worth seeing. Beautiful inside.

Hi There is a separate charge to enter the Alnwick Gardens. See their website. The entrance fee for the castle includes access to the castle grounds. We visited last year when we on holiday. Hope this helps
