English Independent Youth Hostel in Alnwick, Northumberland


Alnwick Youth Hostel, 34 - 38 Green Batt, Alnwick, Northumberland, NE66 1TU

Once the town’s Court House, the accommodation now offered at Alnwick Youth Hostel is much less austere. Opened in 2011, this family friendly 4 star hostel is sure to meet the needs of every traveller, with a variety of en suite rooms, cosy lounge, games room and a bright and airy dining room. The hostel’s town centre location makes it ideal for a visit to historic Alnwick Castle, of recent Downton Abbey and Harry Potter fame, and to The Alnwick Garden, a contemporary pleasure garden in the shadow of the castle. A 15 minute car journey makes the coast within easy reach. There you will find fantastic castles at Dunstanburgh and Bamburgh, the wildlife haven of the Farne Isles, magical Holy Island and glorious sandy beaches. A short trip inland brings you to the stunning heather clad Cheviot Hills, Hadrian’s Wall and Border Reiver country. Great for families, groups, cyclists and backpackers.
