Ideal for visiting the castle and gardens. Would use again.Kevin
Very convenient, hassle free parking in the middle of Alnwick. Would definitely recommend.Jo
Easy. 2 cars in one piece on return. Seemed safe and conveniently close to Morrisons. We were walking Northumberland coastal path and needed to leave cars for a few days. £10 taxi fare to/ from Alnmouth Station.Ali
Highly recommend as good valueAnna
There was always a space available to park in. The carpark was well lit and well maintained. Very convenient location for accessing the town center. Would use this service/car park again.Margaret
This space is really easy to find and well located. The space is actually Morrisons car park and so if you're following a sat nav be aware. Left my car for two nights and didn't worry about leaving it. The car park is well lit with a lot of space so you'll have no issue parking here.Alexandra
