Trip Info

The Viking Coast and Alnwick Castle trip is a 9-hour sightseeing tour which explores Holy Island’s famous filming locations for movies such as Harry Potter, Downtown Abbey, and Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. Lindisfarne or Holy Island is a tidal island which was the home to Irish monk settlers from Scotland circa in AD 635. In 793 a fierce Viking invasion heralded the beginning of the Viking Age. You will drive towards the historic border town of Berwick-on-Tweed, following the sweeping coastline of the North Sea. Continue on, to cross the ancient Scotland/England border into Northumberland.
