Alnwick is the main market town on the River Aln and an excellent centre for touring, Alnwick Castle, built on a 12th century site and principal seat of the historic house of Percy, stood as a ruin for 200 years following the Border warfare and was restored in the 18th and 19th centuries by the Dukes of Northumberland. The symbol of the Percy family a lion with straight, stiff tail - stands majestically on top of the Percy tenantry column, erected at the town's southern entrance in 1816 by 1000 grateful tenants after their rents had been reduced. A layby has been made for motorists on the steep north bank of the Aln, from which the view of the castle is almost identical to the one made famous in Canaletto's 18th-century painting which hangs in the castle.
Alnmouth, 4 miles south-east at the mouth of the river, has one of the oldest golfcourses in England, laid out in 1869. This town, a seaport since 1200, is a growing centre for yachting.
