Know More about this tour

We leave Edinburgh at8.15am and head south to the Borders. On the way, you will see the gently rolling hills and dramatic coastlines of East Lothian. Our first stop is the beautiful coastal town Bamburgh. Take a stroll to the stunning beach and view the dramatic 5th century Bamburgh Castle sitting on a natural throne of volcanic dolerite.

In the afternoon, we will meet the star of the show, Alnwick Castle. There is far too much to do here; admire large stately rooms and beautiful architecture, explore the spectacular gardens or learn a little about all the popular films and TV shows that have been filmed here.

After spending time in Alnwick, we make our way back over the border and in to Scotland. Our final stop is the border town of Coldstream that lies on the north side of the River Tweed. Hear about the turbulent past of this charming town before our journey ends in Edinburgh, early evening.
