Alnwick Castle day trip from Edinburgh

Summary

Leave the capital behind and prepare to spend the day exploring the best parts of the Scottish Borders and Northumberland. Your first stop will be the picturesque seaside town of Bamburgh where you can marvel at its castle and take in the sea views before heading on to the real star of the show, Alnwick Castle. You might recognise this castle as the backdrop of Harry Potter and Downton Abbey but this historic location also has a rich history and heritage waiting to be discovered. You're sure to feel like you're stepping back in time (or on to the big screen)! After spending some time in Alnwick, you'll hear all about the border's turbulent history as you make your way back to Scotland.

Venues

  • Trips from Edinburgh - Ahhhh, the famous Scottish wilderness!

  • Scottish Castles - With thick walls of stone and tall tower turrets, the castles of Scotland have guarded the Highlands for centuries. Many were built for defense, helping kings and dukes establish their rule over the land, while others were lavish country homes, built more for style than practical defense. Several castles have seen bloody battles and turned the tides in epic wars.

  • Harry Potter Train Scotland - Riding the Hogwarts Express (known as the Jacobite Steam Train) is a bucket-list experience for any traveller, especially for Harry Potter fans! Travel across 84 miles of beautiful Scottish highland scenery on the same route that’s used in the films starting at Fort Williams and ending at the fishing village of Mallaig.
