We visited Alnwick Castle and booked ahead. We paid £8 each for a Castle and Grounds ticket only to find on arrival that this didn’t include the magnificent gardens or entry into the castle. The castle itself is spectacular but a lot seemed to be cordoned off or not running. I do fully appreciate that this is probably because of COVID however feel that the prices could have been adjusted as all we were able to do was walk around and read 4 information boards and use the loo.

We visited Alnwick Castle as a family of 4 which included our children aged 7 & 10. Both were very excited to visit the Harry Potter castle. Upon entering we booked broomstick training and paid £24 for both our children to take part and booked a slot for later in the day. The castle grounds are very interesting however due to COVID restrictions the queues were very long to go inside some parts. We only managed the archeology area after queuing 30 mins which wasn’t really worth the queue. To be able to go on a tour inside the castle it was a further £12 per person which seemed expensive when we had paid an entry fee. The broomstick training was also expensive for what it was, 30 mins of hopping on and off a broomstick was good fun but seemed expensive. The gift shop was reasonably priced for a broomstick each for the kids to bring home as a memory of their trip :)

We had a lovely wander around the grounds in the sunshine. We had to book online in advance but there was plenty of tickets available including same day tickets. We thought £8 per adult was reasonable for such a well-kept castle. You had to book additional tours to go inside the castle but didn’t do this but worth knowing before arrival as some were fully booked. We enjoyed reading the information boards around the grounds which taught you the history as well as information about movies filmed at the castle. Lots of staff around to help and social distancing well organised.

After being given wrong information from a lady on the phone, we arrived at Alnwick castle thinking everything additional could be booked when we got there. Nothing was available to book. Tracey at the mini golf saved the day by allowing us to pay to get in and do this. What a lovely lady, great customer service and genuinely wanting to help us. Our 6 year old was over the moon. Thank you Tracy if you read this as you turned a really frustrating and disappointing day into a one where our daughter had a bit of fun. How lovely it would be if all people were as kind and helpful as you.
