Edinburgh

The tour starts with a drive through the beautiful landscape of the Scottish Borders, the southern part of the country with its picturesque towns and villages. This is also the region where Sir Walter Scott lived. He was not only a famous writer and poet, but also a great believer in the Union between Scotland and England. In 1822 he invited King George 4th to Edinburgh, which was a great success with King George being the first monarch to visit in nearly 150 years. Sir Walter Scott rests in Dryburgh Abbey, not far away from Melrose where the first stop of our tour will be.

Melrose

From Edinburgh, we head out in a southerly direction through the rolling Moorfoot Hills to the picturesque town of Melrose where we will enjoy a photo-stop at the ancient Abbey. Dating from the 12th Century the Abbey was attacked and ransacked by the English troops on many occasions. The Scottish King, Robert the Bruce, had the Abbey rebuilt and it is said that he loved it so much his heart was buried here.

Alnwick Castle

Impressive Alnwick Castle is next. After Windsor Castle it is the second largest inhabited castle in England and has been occupied for over 700 years. If you are a fan of the Harry Potter movies then Alnwick is sure to be familiar to you as it was here that Harry and his classmates had their first flights using broomsticks. During our time here you can explore the impressive State rooms or stroll through the extensive gardens.


The next stop and star attraction of the tour is Alnwick Castle. Here you will have maximum time to explore the castle and the gardens. As the seat of the Duke of Northumberland this is the second largest inhabited castle in England and has been lived in for over 700 years. 


It is full of fascinating things to see and mysteries to uncover. Wander around the medieval walls and be amazed by the large lavish state rooms, which amongst other things house a collection of 14,000 catalogued books in the Library. While you walk around the castle you may recognise it as a location from some of the Harry Potter films and Downton Abbey. You can even take part in a broomstick training session on the very spot where Harry had his first flying lesson – no matter what age you are! For those who want to stay on the ground there are various museums and exhibitions to discover inside the castle, ranging from a Downtown Abbey exhibition featuring photography, costumes and props from the show to the Castle Museum.
