Places to eat & drink in Alnwick.

The area around Alnwick, just 30 miles north of Newcastle-upon-Tyne is one of the most rural and sparsely populated districts in the UK. From here is is possible to visit picturesque villages, historic market towns or ancient castles, all surrounded by spectacular scenery.

County town of Northumberland and seat of the Duke of Northumberland, Alnwick is a picturesque market town dating back to medieval times. It developed as a staging post on the London to Edinburgh route as it was about half way between Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Berwick upon Tweed, just a day's ride from each. Parts of the town still have the old cobbled streets and narrow alleys. The fine stone buildings which once were inns now house a variety of specialist shops.

On the outskirts of the town can be found Alnwick castle, a medievil castle built in the thirteenth century. As well as being home to the Duke of Northumberland, Alnwick castle has also been a back drop for many films and television productions such as 'Harry Potter and the Philosophers stone', 'Elizabeth', 'Robin Hood - Prince of Thieves', 'Ivan Hoe', 'Mary Queen of Scots', and 'Blackadder I'.
