Alnmouth train station is located in the village of Alnmouth, Northumberland. Trains to Alnmouth glide along the quaint East Coast Main Line with the North Sea twinkling on the horizon - it's a fitting way to arrive in this charming Northumberland town.

The station itself opened in 1847, and although little survives of the original structure, it remains a delightful railway outpost. It's also right at the end of the Aln Valley Heritage line, which is being reconstructed.

Alnmouth was once an important grain port, but the arrival of rail saw the town blossom into a popular seaside resort - and you couldn't wish for a more picturesque waterside holiday destination. When visitors aren't building sandcastles, they're riding horses across the coastline at Alnmouth beach. Other highlights include Britain's smallest museum, The Ferryman's Hut and the Castles Cycle Route taking in the heady sights of the North Sea.
