What to expect

Leave the capital behind and prepare to spend the day exploring the best parts of the Scottish Borders and Northumberland. Your first stop will be the picturesque seaside town of Bamburgh where you can marvel at its castle and take in the sea views before heading on to the real star of the show, Alnwick Castle. You might recognise this castle as the backdrop of Harry Potter and Downton Abbey but this historic location also has a rich history and heritage waiting to be discovered. You're sure to feel like you're stepping back in time (or on to the big screen)! After spending some time in Alnwick, you'll hear all about the border's turbulent history as you make your way back to Scotland.
