Northumberland Reports

Alnwick, Northumberland

Review of Alnwick by Pete B on April 9th, 2006
The image of Alnwick Castle has now become global through a certain young wizard, but as I was growing up in the 1980's this beautiful building was included in the hilarious Medieval comedy, The Blackadder. Sometimes known as 'The Windsor of the north' [I've also heard it called 'The Arundel of the north'] it is set in glorious surroundings, with the town a short distance away. Nowadays quite peaceful, it was'nt always so..and was in the firing line of English-Scottish hostilities.
