Now it is best to park away up the hill out of town, behind the new "Garden". We did and headed off to see the castle and later the town.
The Garden is a different venue. As we are OAPs we get in to the castle for £12. The ticket can last for a year of visits. The Garden is another £12.!
We left after the crowds started to arrive in droves and went down to the beach at Alnmouth and stayed the afternoon and had tea in the pub and then came home. A Grand Day Out.
