The castle grounds reopened today (Monday, March 29) in line with the easing of Covid-19 restrictions.

Visitors were keen to take in the beautiful scenery despite the blustery weather.

The daffodils were all planted over the last 25 years and with several varieties there is a patchwork of impressive contrasting shades of yellow filling the landscape in front of the castle.

Alnwick Castle has reopened its grounds to visitors in line with the easing of Covid-19 restrictions.

Soon, the nearby Alnwick Gardens will also be awash with the pinks of cherry blossom.

All the castle’s outdoor entertainment and activities will begin again on April 12.

However, the castle’s resident dragon has been busy laying eggs throughout the grounds and younger visitors can download a self-guided Dragon Egg hunt to try and find them.

Covid-19 social distancing restrictions still apply and to ensure everyone is safe, tickets must be booked in advance at www.alnwickcastle.com
