    Day 3.  On our final day, we'll stop at the pretty market town of Richmond, it's a short walk to the Castle from the centre of town, or you can enjoy afternoon tea and a wander. We then head to Alnwick, where you can opt to visit the beautiful Alnwick Castle* ( you may recognise it from the Harry Potter broomstick flying scenes!) or explore the town of Alnwick itself. It's home to the incredible Barter Books, a magical second-hand bookshop in a converted Victorian railway station. Our next stop is where you can enjoy stunning coastal views before we return to our departure city of Edinburgh.
