Unlock Alnwick Castle

28 March 2012

Pay for a day, visit for a year.

Alnwick Castle and The Alnwick Garden. Unlocked.

Alnwick Castle's gates have been flung wide open in celebration of the launch of the new ‘Unlocked Ticket’. From 31st March, all day tickets will entitle visitors to unlimited return visits for 12 months, and with an abundance of things to explore, see and experience, visitors are sure to make the most of this great value offer.

Paying once and returning as many times as they like during opening hours, visitors will be invited to experience all the Castle has to offer, from the medieval world of Knight’s Quest, to broomstick training in the Castle’s Outer Bailey or the stunning art and furniture in the Castle’s sumptuous State Rooms. Visitors can also enjoy each of the spectacular seasons in The Garden, from the spring blossoms to the scented roses in summer, the transformation as greens turn to a glorious shade of rust in autumn, and the dramatic winter landscapes.

The ‘Unlocked Ticket’ will be available for both Alnwick Castle (£14) and The Alnwick Garden (£12) as well as a combined ticket offer (£24), which will allow visitors to enjoy both attractions for a full year from the day of purchase.

A child’s ticket (5 – 16yrs) will cost just £4 for The Garden, £7 for the Castle or £10 for a combined offer, and with a family ticket available at £28 for The Garden, £36 for the Castle and £58 for a combined ticket, allowing entry for two adults and up to four children for the year, this is great value fun not to be missed.

Pricing for Friends of the Garden, who will continue to receive a host of advantages, will stay the same this year, starting at £25.

With a programme of wonderful events taking place throughout the year from exciting seasonal activities to the highly-anticipated Jubilee celebrations, the Alnwick Castle and The Alnwick Garden ‘Unlocked Ticket’ is a must-have for all.
