What To Expect

Go on a tour beyond the Scottish Borders and into a magnificent castle! You will begin by meeting up with a fun, knowledgeable English-speaking tour guide at Rabbie's Café Bar, Waterloo Place in Edinburgh. Once you’re all set, you’ll hop aboard a comfy coach that’ll take you down the road that connected Caledonia with Roman Britannia, and into the handsome town of Kelso, which is thought to be the home of Scotland’s largest market square. You will also drop by the ruins of Kelso Abbey, which has served as a reminder for the country of the many ancient conflicts between Scotland and England. After staying in this wonderful town, you will cross the border to the south 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 recently, the 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. It’s also heaven for book lovers because it’s home to one of the largest and most impressive second-hand book shops in Britain. After exploring Alnwick for three hours, you will travel north along the Northumberland Coast, one of the United Kingdom’s most outstanding areas of natural beauty; you can stop along the way to admire some of the area’s best known beaches, castles, and ancient border towns. After spending time at the coast, you will return to Rabbie's Café Bar, where this wonderful tour ends.
