Alnwick Garden Coach Trip Itinerary

Day One :

Coach travel to Newcastle

We leave your coach pick up early in the morning and head to the Newcastle area, stopping en route for the chance to have lunch. We then continue to our overnight hotel, arriving in good time to unpack and relax before dinner is served.


Day Two :

Included Alnwick Garden visit

Today's highlight is our visit to marvellous, contemporary Alnwick Garden. From the symmetrical design and 15,000-plus plants of the Ornamental Garden to the water sculptures arranged around a 'serpent' shaped from holly; and from the Poison Garden containing some of the world's deadliest beauties to the bamboo Labyrinth, there's simply so much to see.

During your time here you'll also have the chance to explore Alnwick Castle itself. This magnificent medieval border fortress was extensively restored in the 19th Century, was the location used as Brancaster Castle in Downton Abbey's 2014 Christmas special, and now features a Downton Abbey exhibition of photography, costumes, and props. Newmarket guests are entitled to a specially negotiated entry rate, payable to your Tour Manager on site.

Day Three :

Included Lindisfarne excursion

The second highlight of our break is our visit to Lindisfarne, the fabled offshore island only accessible at low tide via a narrow causeway. Stroll around the village and take in the fabulous views, visit romantic Lindisfarne Castle, the tiny but delightful Gertrude Jekyll garden and the ancient Priory ruin with its 'rainbow arch', or enjoy the interactive 'Lindisfarne Gospels' exhibition in the Lindisfarne Centre (all entry fees payable locally).

During the day we'll also visit Bamburgh, home of famous lighthouse-keeper's daughter, Grace Darling, before returning to our hotel in time for dinner.

Day Four :

Coach trip to York

After a leisurely breakfast we'll begin our journey home, stopping en route in historic York, and arriving back at your coach pick up by early-to-mid evening.

Further Information

Coach seating arrangements

Your seats on the main coach will be allocated for you in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible. Your Tour Manager or driver will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach.)

Joining your holiday

Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.

Meal arrangements

Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day.

Triple rooms

The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
