If you haven't had your fill of gardens, one of the jewels in Northumberland's crown is The Alnwick Garden. Founded and nurtured by the Duchess of Northumberland, the gardens are a wonderful combination of family fun, and serene tranquility. Enjoy the Grand Cascade water fountain, marvel at the Poison Garden, and explore one of the world's largest tree houses; there is plenty to entertain all ages.

For those more inclined to country houses, Cragside, a Victorian house owned by the famous inventor Lord Armstrong, provides an opportunity to see ingenious gadgets, one of the largest rock gardens in Europe, and the first house in the world to be lit by hydroelectricity.

There are even more activities to be found inland. The market town of Alnwick offers Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland, and famous filming location of the Harry Potter films. Learn how to fly with broomstick lessons hosted by Hogwarts Professors in the courtyard, and test your nerve by visiting the dungeons beneath the ancient fortress.
