After breakfast today we join our coach to travel to Alnwick Garden, which is the inspiration of the current Duchess of Northumberland. The garden combines different styles, and includes a Grand Water Cascade and the world's biggest tree houses. After lunch we travel to the imposing Bamburgh Castle which reigns over the surrounding landscape. The state rooms are filled with the finest porcelain, china, furniture and artworks. There are also weapons glinting from the walls and cases which hint at the turmoil and sieges that have taken place in this area. After an enjoyable day out we return to our hotel and our evening meal.
