What To Expect

Leave Edinburgh in the morning and head south to the Borders. On the way to England, you will see the gently rolling hills and dramatic coastlines of East Lothian. The first stop is the beautiful coastal village of Bamburgh. Take a stroll to the stunning beach and view the dramatic 5th-century Bamburgh Castle sitting on a natural throne of volcanic rock. You won't access the interior of Bamburgh Castle, but you'll have sufficient time to explore the village and take a walk along the beach, with breathtaking views of the Castle never far from sight.In the afternoon meet the star of the show, Alnwick Castle. There is lots to do here; admire large stately rooms and beautiful architecture, explore the spectacular gardens, or learn a little about all the popular films and TV shows that have been filmed here.After spending time in Alnwick, make your way back over the border and into Scotland. On the drive home, you'll be entertained with tales of the turbulent past before arriving into Edinburgh in the early evening.
