This station, also known as Alnmouth for Alnwick, lies just outside this picturesque Northumberland town and was built in the summer of 1847. Travelling on the East Coast Main Line allows you to enjoy the calming view of the North Sea to the East in this glorious part of the country.

Serving around half a million passengers every year, Alnmouth Station once played an important role in the grain industry. However, as leisure time became more valuable, tourists would arrive by train to experience the beautiful sandy beaches and stunning countryside, escaping from the smog-filled industrialised Northern cities for a weekend. It’s still a popular holiday resort with visitors travelling many miles to breathe in the fresh sea air.

Whether you’re going to Alnmouth for business or for a family day out, Northern has a range of cheap tickets that are perfect for your trip. These include the Family and Friends Railcard and Off-Peak tickets if you want a quieter train ride.
