Alnwick trip 24 to 28/03/2016

John G. organised a stay at Alnwick YHA. We did bus trips and coastal and circular walks, visited historic castles, houses and monuments, had meals out and in the YHA and visited pubs.

John wrote:
The Easter weekend was spent at the Northumbrian medieval market town of Alnwick. 20 of us stayed at the comfortabe youth hostel and enjoyed a variety of costal and country walks and visits to interesting historic places like Alnwick Castle, Lindisfarne, Bamburgh and Berwick. The weather was fairly kind to us and we avoided the heavy rain and storms that ravaged other areas. The local hosteleries were well patronised and we enjoyed a very substantial meal out at the Black Swan on the Saturday night.
A good time seemed to be had by all!!
