In the meantime, there are hundreds of pages of fascinating images and stories on: www.bailiffgatecollections.co.uk 

Bailiffgate is an award-winning  people’s museum, where fascinating stories of the past are told about Alnwick and District. The area has a very rich history because it was a centre of conflict between Scotland and England for many centuries. Two floors house our permanent collection of artefacts, documents, photographs and audio visual content. On our third, Gallery floor are exhibitions which change throughout the year, and events for the whole family, so there's always something new to enjoy. We are open Tuesday to Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays throughout the year except the Christmas period.

Our historic building is in the town’s Castle Quarter, very close to Alnwick Castle and Garden. It was previously a church, and provides a beautiful setting in which to celebrate 10,000 years of unique heritage. Look on this website for a range of exhibitions and  events for the whole family. Keep up to date by registering as a museum FriendExhibitions are always free  with museum entry and friends get in free for a whole year.
