The historic town of Alnwick is within close reach of Bamburgh, with its unique history, its Castle (made famous in the Harry Potter films) and the renowned Alnwick Garden, it has much to offer the visitor, resident or business alike.

Visit Northumberland’s heritage coast, which is adjacent with the Scottish Borders to the north and the North Sea to the east, the 100 mile long Northumberland Coast is a designated Area Of Outstanding Beauty (AONB), sweeping from the historic town of Berwick upon Tweed in the north, to the village of Tynemouth with its golden sands and rolling surf, in the south. Take a trip to Holy Island, with it’s stunning Lindisfarne Castle. You can also take a boat trip to the Farne Islands, a nature reserve with grey seals and a vast range of sea birds, or to Bass Rock on which nest 10% of the world’s population of North Atlantic Gannets.

Nearby is the historic walled town of Berwick Upon Tweed, the most northern town in England. Over the centuries, ownership of Berwick has changed hands between England and Scotland no less than 14 times. Today it is a popular holiday spot with people drawn to see its town walls, beaches, shops and cafes and – of course – the swans on the River Tweed beneath the famous border bridges.
