Guided Tour | Alnwick Castle
Friday 8 April 2011 - 09:30 until 15:30
New for 2011, Alnwick Castle will have a private collection exhibition room which will contain never before seen items in the family collection. Elizabeth, the first Duchess of Northumberland (b. 1716) was an intreguing character and enjoyed accumulating articles of interest. The tour involves entering a locked room at the back of the house where all of these fascinating items are displayed. A knowledgable guide will take the group through the origins and stories behind them. This is a unique opportunity to view this collection as it will be on view for one season only. There will also be the opportunity to view other collections within the castle.
