Travelling around Alnwick
The historic market town of Alnwick is located in a picturesque setting just 5 miles from the wild Northumberland coast and only a short drive from the A1. The fact that it is an equal distance from both Newcastle and Berwick makes it an excellent base from which to explore the surrounding countryside, and Arriva buses run to and from Alnwick in both directions.
Once you’ve arrived, however, there’s every chance that you’ll want to spend your time simply strolling the cobbled streets, soaking up the tranquil atmosphere and admiring the many historic buildings.
There are events held in Alnwick throughout the year, such as the annual food, beer and international music festivals, as well as regular farmers markets and even a medieval jousting tournament, so whenever you arrive you can be sure of a warm welcome.
