Alnwick over Easter

Last week was spent recharging our batteries with a well-earned break in Alnwick over Easter. We stayed in a holiday “cottage” (it was actually a mid-terraced house) in Alnwick itself, within easy walking distance of all local amenities. The house was lovely. Three big bedrooms (two doubles and a twin), a large living room, similar sized dining room and a long thin kitchen. There was even a little space out back to sit in the sun (although we didn’t have much while we were there). Parking is a bit of a nightmare in Alnwick but the house had it’s own private parking space immediately outside. If there are two cars though it could be fun trying to find another space!

Not all of the places we visited were run by English Heritage but of those that weren’t only the Beamish Museum didn’t offer any sort of discount – the rest gave around 10% off to English Heritage members. Additionally, most of those locations, with the exception of Bamburgh Castle this time, allowed you to “upgrade” your ticket to an annual pass for free. An added bonus as we are going back to Alnwick in the summer :)

Anyway, here is the list of places we visited:

We had a lovely time and look forward to going back in the summer. Hopefully, this time, we won’t have to cancel the boat trips because of the wind ;)
