ARE DOGS ALLOWED IN THE CASTLE AND ITS GROUNDS?
Unfortunately, only guide dogs are permitted in the castle and grounds.
However, there are many beautiful dog-friendly walks in and around Alnwick - including in the pastures behind the castle.
If I buy a ticket to the castle can I also visit The Alnwick Garden?
Unlike the position at other stately homes The Alnwick Garden is not just the gardens to Alnwick Castle, but is instead a visitor attraction in its own right, with its own events and visiting arrangements. This is reflected in the ticketing process which aims to provide visitors with a range of options including spending a whole day at each attraction.
There are a number of ticket options available:
- Castle only
- Garden only
- Castle and Garden
Tickets to Alnwick Castle can be validated for 12 months (at no extra cost) in Admissions on the date of your visit, but tickets to The Alnwick Garden are valid for the day only.

Child: 5-16 years (under 4's go free)
Concession: students and those aged 60+ years (valid ID for both is required)
Is Alnwick Castle accessible for disabled visitors?
Unfortunately, due to the historic nature of the castle and its grounds, disabled access is limited in some areas (please click here for our full accessibility guide).
We also offer free admission for one carer per disabled visitor who purchases a concession ticket - please ask at Admissions on the date of your visit.
CAN I BRING BAGS TO THE CASTLE?
