Alnwick is a relatively large market town in north Northumberland, England, of which it is the county town. Alnwick is known for historic sites, shopping, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the historical opulence of The Alnwick Garden, look for gifts at Barter Books, explore the activities along Embleton Bay, and kick back and relax at St Aiden Beach.

For maps, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, read our Alnwick trip planner.

Durham to Alnwick is an approximately 1.5- hour car ride. You can also take a train; or do a combination of train and bus. In November, plan for daily highs up to 11°C, and evening lows to 4°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Mon) so you can go by car back home.
