Due to its location in the town centre, Alnwick Youth Hostel is absolutely ideal for visits in and around one of the most historically important towns in the north of England.
From Alnwick Castle – with its starring role as Hogwarts in the film adaptations of Harry Potter books and in recent episodes of Downton Abbey – to the neighbouring Alnwick Garden, where an enormous tree house has been built among the tree tops, there is no shortage of things for school trips to see and do in the area.
What’s more, it’s only a 15-minute drive to the endless beaches that the Northumberland coast has become famous for – along with the mind-blowing castles of Dunstanburgh, Warkworth and Bamburgh. The wildlife havens found on Holy Island and the Farne Isles also offer unrivalled chances for students to get to grips with biology in its element.
A school trip to Alnwick Youth Hostel is perhaps incomplete without a visit to Barter Books, home to one of the largest second-hand bookshops in Europe. It’s perfect for any budding English literature students, and serves as the perfect place to lose a few hours in the pages of a great tome.Find out more about Alnwick Youth Hostel
