Buses departing Newcastle upon Tyne don't come more scenic than the X18 service to Berwick upon Tweed. The X18 service runs to/from Berwick upon Tweed, along the coast passing passing through Alnwick, Amble and Morpeth on the way to Newcastle upon Tyne's Haymarket bus station. Buy a day ticket and you can jump off at any of the stops along the route and enjoy everything the Northumberland Coast has to offer.
Bus users visiting Alnwick should show their Arriva bus ticket and claim 20% off the admission price to Alnwick Castle.
