We are planning a trip to England for March 10th-March 20th. I was intending to spend a few days exploring the Northumberland region, specifically because we were interested in the castles and Hadrian's wall.
I just realized that Alnwick will still be closed during our visit for Winter. Does most of Northumberland become pretty quiet in the winter season? I had my heart set on Alnwick and if we can't visit, I am thinking about scrapping the rest of Northumberland entirely, and saving it for a return trip when we plan to spend a few weeks in Scotland. I just don't want us to waste time in an area that won't have much open or things to do. I am also curious about the weather at that time of year as well, so if anyone has experience with March in Northumberland, I would appreciate your thoughts on that.
