Visit the Bailiffgate Museum and Gallery

Bailiffgate Museum and Gallery is a people’s museum, where fascinating stories of the past are told about the town and district of Alnwick. Our historic building in the town’s Castle Quarter, which was previously a church, provides a calm and beautiful setting in which to celebrate our distinctive heritage, display special exhibitions and present a range of events for the whole family.

There is so much to discover at the Bailiffgate – through our displays and interactive activities, films, music and song, a history discovery area, local newspaper archives and evocative images of the past. There are changing exhibitions in the upstairs gallery which showcase local history, arts and crafts. We have a range of books, DVDs and interesting mementoes of your visit in our small shop.
