- Bamburgh Castle
- Alnmouth

There are also lots of great beaches you can visit. Our particular favourite is Embleton Bay, featured in the photographs on this page.

If the weather isn’t too good there are some excellent museums and galleries and great shopping in Newcastle and at the Metro Centre in Gateshead. The train to Edinburgh can be easily accessed from Alnmouth station. There is a leisure centre at Alnwick for swimming and a large soft play called ‘Castle Mania’ on the Amble to Morpeth road.
