Not forgetting, the fantastic Northumberland eateries with some lovely restaurants, cafés and bistros; both in Alnwick and the surrounding villages, serving a delicious selection of food using local produce.
Alnwick has lots to offer holidaymakers with the well-loved Alnwick Castle and The Alnwick Garden attractions, Barter Books – one of the Uk’s largest second hand book stores set in an old Victorian railway station and the WIllowburn Leisure Centre. Inside the town centre, known locally as ‘Bondgate Within’ you will find pretty cobbled streets and a fantastic range of high street outlets alongside boutique shops and traditional tearooms.
