    Car Parking

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The official car park for Alnwick Castle and Garden is located on the B1340 opposite the entrance to the Garden.
    If you intend visiting the Garden and don’t mind paying £3 for the day’s parking on top of your admission fees, then it’s a purpose made car park with plenty of spaces.
    If, on the other hand, you’re really only interested in visiting the castle and a quick look around the town, then there are car parks in the town centre which might be better suited.
    Driving into town along the B6346 from the A1 end you’ll come to the unmistakeable Bondgate Tower. Instead of driving through it, turn right into Greenwell Rd. There are several Pay & Display car parks down here with various charges depending on your length of stay. If you’ve timed it right you can park in the first one - known as Greenwell Rd Part A - for free all day. It’s obviously the most popular and if you have to park in a different one it’s best to look closely at what the charges are.
    You can reach the castle by walking down Greenwell Rd, but you might want to walk back up to the Bondgate and take a detour through the town instead.

    Going to Alnwick by public transport

    by Steph84 Written Jul 8, 2008

    When going to Alnwick by train, hop off at Alnmouth station and then take the bus into Alnwick. The bus stop is just up the road somewhat to the left; the 518 runs once every hour or so and takes about 10 minutes. When travelling from Newcastle, you can also take the bus, routes 501 or 505 (best NOT to take the 518, as it takes absolutely ages), which is a cheap alternative to the train and takes somewhat more than an hour to get to Alnwick. For fares and timetables, check the Arriva bus website.
