Bus Travel in Alnwick

Harry Potter's Hogwarts - in real life

Just five miles from the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Alnwick Castle is most famous for its leading part as Hogwarts in Harry Potter, which makes it a fun day out for families with 'Potterheads'. Show your ticket at the entrance and get 10% discount to the castle and gardens! Hype aside, it is one of the largest and most beautifully preserved castles in the UK and has tranquil walled gardens just next door featuring one of the world's largest tree houses. There are varied eateries, festivals and markets in Alnwick town centre as well, so you won't have to look too far come dinner time.

We provide frequent bus services in and around Alnwick which connect the town Newcastle and nearby villages. Why not avoid the hassle of finding a parking space and relax on the bus instead?
