UK's Best Tourist Site: Alnwick Castle!

Jump to last reply

The BBC did a poll of over 1,200 brits asking what was the UK's top tourist site to them and the top site is no doubt few Americans at least ever think of going to, though many blow by on trains to Edinburgh on the train line that passes close to it.


I've traveled the UK annually since 1969 and never heard of Alnwick Castle until i came to stay in Berwick-upon-Tweed to do day trips to the Borders Abbey.

Yet perhaps the finest day trip i overlooked was to this obviously amazing castle. I thought about going but did not consider it more than just another castle so did not.


Worth me taking another jaunt to Berwick to find out - i also wanted to see Holy Island too so may just go
