    Hi Will,
    you can stay in the Alnwick castle car park over night, cost is 3.00 for the van & 2 people,nice & handy to go into the town centre.
    loads of lovely places up there along the coast, Seahouses. Bamburgh, Holy island(there's a car park just before you get to the causeway).
    hope you have a lovely time.
    kev

    Just a bit of general parking info - there is a Northumberland Parking Disc scheme - used for most car parks I believe (certainly the ones I have used). Costs 1 and then the car parks are free for the time limit. handy to keep a disc in the van

    I must be missing something when browsing their website, this is all I could find regarding parking.

    BY ROAD
    Alnwick Castle is less than a mile off the A1 and is well signposted. The main castle car park is just off Denwick Lane (B1340); the postcode for the car park is NE66 1YU (parking charge is 3 per vehicle for the day and open from 10am during the season).

    Nothing about overnighting and it states open from 10am.
    The castle is actually shut for the season from 27th October.
    The most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - its all that matters.

    This is our favourite area in England, in the past parked in the Car Park outside Alnwick Gardens where there are 4 Motorhome bays.

    If you turn right just before the arch it takes you to the car parks phillybarbour is talking about
