Had a lovely afternoon after visiting the gardens. Loved looking around the rooms in the castle seeing the beautiful furnishings, furniture, lighting, etc. The grounds are wonderful too. Will definitely return soon.

Lets get the moan out of the way first! You have to pay £3.00 to park in the Alnwick Castle/Gardens car park and then the entrance fee on top - most other attractions in the area give you back the car parking fee when you...More
