Itinerario

El día incluye la ciudad fronteriza de Kelso y lo mejor de los Borders Escoceses y Northumberland. En Coldstream cruzamos la frontera y disfrutamos de la comida y la tarde en el castillo de Alnwick y sus jardines, que fueron el escenario del castillo de Hogwarts en las dos primeras películas de Harry Potter, antes de volver a Edimburgo bordeando la dramática costa del Oeste de Berwickshire y East Lothian, pasando por la antigua ciudad amurallada de Berwick upon Tweed.

Itinerary (English)

Your tour begins by following the road that connected Caledonia with Roman Britannia.

You stop in Kelso, where you can explore this handsome town and what is thought to be Scotland’s largest market square. You also see the ruins of Kelso Abbey, a reminder of the many ancient conflicts between Scotland and England.

Continuing South, you cross the border and travel to Alnwick Castle, an immense fortification that has stood strong for nearly a millennium.

It was originally built to assert Norman rule over newly conquered lands. But more recently Alnwick Castle and its perfectly manicured gardens have found fame as one of the settings for the fictional Hogwarts school in the Harry Potter movie series.

Book lovers should take the opportunity to explore one of the largest and most impressive second-hand book shops in Britain.

After around three hours at Alnwick, you travel north along the Northumberland Coast, one of the UK’s most outstanding areas of natural beauty. You stop along the way to admire some of the area’s best known beaches, castles, and ancient Border towns.

We re very satisfied about our one day tour to Alnwick castle with Catty. Her knowledge of the country, stories and jokes made it very much worthwhile. We ll certainly recommend Rabbies to our friends.

I thoroughly enjoyed this excellent tour, led by the excellent tour guide Al, who was fun and full of information. The tour began with a drive through the very picturesque Scottish Borders to the first stop in Melrose. Here we visited the ruins of the once great Abbey and also the gravestone where Robert the Bruce’s heart is buried. Soon after leaving the pretty town of Melrose we arrived at the Scotland/England border, which we crossed on foot, walking over the River Tweed Coldstream Bridge (erected 1763-1766). Al then made a special trip, at my request, to visit the Flodden Battlefield and memorial to the thousands who died on 9th September 1513. The next visit was to Alnwick, where we had several hours to have lunch and visit themagnificent Norman Castle, stately home and filming site of 2 Harry Potter movies. On the way back to Edinburgh we made a short stop in Berwick and then in Dunbar to see the ruins of the Castle which has connections to Mary Queen of Scots. Overall this is an excellent tour for those who love Scottish history, Castles and beautiful countryside.

History and Harry Potter

Highly recommendable day trip - especially with such a competent tour guide as ours: Eric, the Bloodaxe of Viking origins :)) - I did the trip together with my daughers (16 and almost 14) and we all thoroughly enjoyed each stop, the fantastic landscape as well as Eric's singing talent!
