Take the opportunity to explore the historic market town of Alnwick.

The team will officially welcome you at a drinks reception, followed by dinner in the Olympic Suite which features the original wood panelling from the sister ship to the Titanic, RMS Olympic.

There are Midnight services in many local churches, and we will be on hand to warm you up on your return with your favourite tipple and mince pies

Christmas Day

Wake up on Christmas morning to a hearty breakfast and a celebratory glass of Bucks Fizz.

Santa will be back at lunchtime after he has delivered a present outside your door during the night!

There will be Christmas cake and Northumberland Cheeses served during the afternoon in our lounge along with board games to entertain the family.

You could also keep warm in Barter Books and while away the hours over a book in front of a roaring fire.

A farewell banquet will be served in the Olympic Suite accompanied by our resident pianist. Afterwards a Festive ‘Pub Quiz’ in our Hardys Bistro
