We offer a free carer place for visitors accompanying a guest with disabilities.  Please add the carer ticket to your timeslot booking and bring proof entitlement with you on the day of your visit.
If you are an HHA member or hold a complimentary ticket to the Castle, you will still need to book a timeslot ahead of your visit.  Please use our live chat service or give us a call on 01665 511 100 and we would be happy to arrange this for you.  Please have your HHA membership card or complimentary ticket to hand when you contact us. 

Test and trace

In accordance with Government COVID 19 guidance, we will be taking contact details from all visitors to the Castle at the time of booking. We will need to keep this information for 21 days and, if asked, we will provide them to NHS Test and Trace.
Please be assured that your information will be stored securely, in line with data protection laws, and will not be shared with anyone else. Additionally, your information will not be used by us in any way other than that stated above. 

By doing this we can help to reduce the risk of any local outbreak. By sharing your information, NHS Test and Trace can quickly identify people who have come into contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 and ask them to take the necessary precautions.

A proportion of the price of each ticket sold will be shared between the following local charities:  HospiceCare North Northumberland (Northumberland Estate’ Charity of the Year), the Alnwick Playhouse, the Fusiliers’ Museum and the Bailiffgate Museum, in recognition that all have been adversely affected by the impact of Covid-19.
Due to the changes we have put in place for the remainder of the 2020 season, the Alnwick Castle ticket unlocking scheme will unfortunately not be available for new members this season

Whether you have a question about your ticket, what to expect when you visit or need a little reassurance before you book, our team is here to help.
