Alnwick Youth Hostel is located in the heart of the medieval town of Alnwick.
Once the town’s Court House built in 1856, today the accommodation offered by Alnwick Youth Hostel 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 Hogwarts, as well as the neighbouring Alnwick Garden, created by the Duchess of Northumberland. Barter Books, the north’s largest second-hand bookshop is just a few minutes’ walk from the hostel door. A 15 minute car journey takes you to the fabulous Northumberland coast, with glorious stretches of golden sand, rolling sand dunes and the imposing castles of Dunstanburgh, Warkworth and Bamburgh. The magical Holy Island of Lindisfarne and the Farne Isles are only a few minutes further north and a must for any bird enthusiast. Only a short trip inland brings you to the stunning heather clad Cheviot Hills and Border Reiver country.
Opened by HM the Queen in 2011 this 4 star standard hostel provides quality budget accommodation, suitable for families, independent travellers and groups alike.
