ALNWICK The heart of Northumberland
40 Years of memories “Barter Books is amazing. The best second-hand bookshop I’ve ever been in. Popped in for an hour and came out six hours later!” “Spend a morning at Hogwarts, aka Alnwick Castle. We dressed up, battled a dragon and did magic with Harry Potter and Hagred.” “Walking across the meadows along the Aln river with Alnwick Castle as your backdrop was magnificent.”
Alnwick is home to the magnificent Alnwick Castle & Gardens and also Barter Books, recently called The British Library of second hand bookshops. Originally a medieval market town it still retains many of its cobbled streets, narrow alleys and fine stone buildings which now house a range of specialist shops. With its own theatre and cinema, many restaurants and pubs, the town offers something for everyone. There are a series of walks through countryside and around the town, and Alnwick Castle Golf Club’s 18- hole parkland course is sure to please with the possible exception of the 14th hole, a monster par 5 known as The Lang Wang.
