Newest Review: ... way!) and the castle gardens set it right there in the philosophers stone. One thing that has crossed the minds of people here is 'did these people actually visit Alnwick before naming it the best town??' Now I'm not saying Alnwick is a bad place to live, as it's not at all, but it's not as exciting as it's made out to be. Though part of my school is right next to the ... more

Well, that's not my opinion! It's official! Our little innocent town of Alnwick has been officially named the best town in England. Why?? That's a question we all asked with disbelief when we heard the news! Apparently, there is only an 18 minute rush hour which helped us win the title and the tourist side of Alnwick with the castle (which is where some of Harry Potter was filmed by the way!) and the castle gardens set it right there in the philosophers stone.

I love this town and the country side around about, the only thing in this town that i hate and dispise, are the people who always look on Alnwick with hatered, there is nothing that the governing bodies or businesses can do with out people either complaining, or not even giving the things a chance to work. It's about time that people in this Town should ask themself "NOT WHAT MY TOWN CAN DO FO ME, BUT WHAT CAN I DO FOR MY TOWN." This rule should be used in every Village, Town, and City. Alot of people including myself aren't extatic about the Alnwick Castle Gardens, but people should look on it a a bit of a blessing, as i think the ... Read the complete review

Hello, my name is Simon. I've lived in Alnwick for many years now and I can still remember the day I came to be here. Oh yes we found ourselves a nice new home in a street that was constantly being added to with new houses. Living there was boring as hell, but still at least as I walked through the town I had many shops to visit and all, at first I would visit the computer shop often and find out what new games were happening, or maybe get some videos from WHSmiths. Later though I became a "Greggs Addict". Yes everyday I needed to visit Greggs for my hunger, every time my stomach cried for food it would be an experience of withdrawal. Well ok, not every ...

A cold lonely remote country town surrounded by fields and the billions of nursing homes may seem to be your average southerners view of the north, However for the people who live there it is hell on earth. For anybody who wants to do something with their life then alnwick is not the place to be. It's ever growing population ( mainly due to the thousands of teen babies!) is only making the town worse. Although their are your quaint english pubs full of your usual fights and hard geordie rejects, alnwick is otherwise dead. Alnwick does boast however a dominating Safeways which seems to dictate what goes on in the town and in effect the local ... Read the complete review

I didn't know dooyoo had a section on Alnwick until I saw my friends review on it. After reading his opinion however, I felt I had to have mine to re-address the balance. While his review is cynical and condemns Alnwick I feel Alnwick isn't as bad as this, so heres what I have to say...... Overview -------- Alnwick is a small market town located in the north of Northumberland. It retains a sense of history and tradition, one which is spearheaded each year by Alnwick fair, more about that later. It isn't the liveliest town, and it doesn't have a great range of entertainment. It also isn't a particulary bad town, there ... Read the complete review
