About this activity
Cross the Scottish border into England on this full-day excursion that departs from Edinburgh. Admire the beautiful scenery of the Borders and explore magnificent Alnwick Castle and its gardens.
Your full-day tour begins in Edinburgh and continues further south through the Scottish Borders, where you’ll stop at Melrose Abbey. This is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful ruins in Europe.
The heart of Robert the Bruce is said to be buried at the Abbey, which is also the final resting place of a number of other Scottish Kings. From here it’s on to England, where you’ll have lots of time to explore the tour’s main attraction, Alnwick Castle.
Alnwick is the 2nd-largest inhabited castle in England, having been lived in for over 700 years. It’s filled with fascinating things to see and mysteries to uncover. You may recognize it as a location from some of the Harry Potter films.
