We leave Edinburgh and head south to the borders. On the way, you will see the gently rolling hills and dramatic coastlines of East Lothian. Our first stop is the beautiful coastal town Bamburgh. Take a stroll to the stunning beach and view the dramatic 5th century Bamburgh Castle sitting on a natural throne of volcanic dolerite. Bamburgh Castle has featured in movies like Robin Hood (2010), Macbeth (2015), Transformers: The Last Knight and The Last Kingdom.
In the afternoon, we will meet the star of the show, Alnwick Castle. Admire large stately rooms and beautiful architecture, explore the spectacular gardens or learn about all the popular films and TV shows that have been filmed here, like The Black Adder, Star Trek, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991), Transformers: The Last Knight, Downton Abbey and of course Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
After spending time in Alnwick, we make our way back over the border and in to Scotland. Passing fateful battlefields, we learn about the turbulent past of the Scottish/English border before our journey ends in Edinburgh, early evening.
