Once the town’s Court House built in 1856, today the accommodation offered by YHA Alnwick is somewhat less austere. Its town centre location makes it ideal for a visit to historic Alnwick Castle, the Medieval home of the Dukes of Northumberland which had a starring role in the early Harry Potter films, as well as the neighbouring Alnwick Garden, recently created by the Duchess.
A 15 minute car journey takes you to the endless beaches which of the Northumberland coast, with glorious views of Dunstanburgh, Warkworth and Bamburgh Castles and wildlife havens such as Holy Island and the Farne Isles. Only a short trip inland brings you to the stunning heather clad Cheviot Hills and Border Reiver country.

- Right on our doorstep, in the old station building in Alnwick is Barter Books - one of the largest second hand bookshops in Europe. Adored by adults and children alike, it’s a very pleasant way to while away the hours, cup of coffee and a good read in hand.
