The Middleton family has lived at Belsay almost continuously since the 13th century, cultivating the 30 acres of gardens surrounding the hall over the years. The Quarry Garden has its own microclimate which means all sorts of exotic plants grow here; it also houses the largest collection of Rhododendron in the country.

The castle has been home to the Percy family for over 700 years, and with over 900 years of history to uncover, a fascinating experience is guaranteed.


We will also have free time to explore Alnwick. This medieval town still retains its charm, and a visit to the atmospheric market square is a must. Browse the local shops, watch the world go by from one of the delightful cafés, or pick something up from one of the second-hand book stores.
