The nearest railway station is Alnmouth. Local trains operate between Newcastle and Berwick-upon-Tweed, and a handful of Virgin Trains East Coast trains on the London King's Cross - Edinburgh route also call there.

The train station in Alnwick is a bookshop called Barter Books. It's sort of famous. You should definitely visit. It doesn't have any trains other than model ones.

The nearest functional train station is Alnmouth. It's on the main line from London Kings Cross to Edinburgh. However, not all services stop there. You may neednto change on to a smaller local train (probably at Newcastle if traveling from London).

To get from Alnmouth to Alnwick you need a bus or taxi. I don't know if there is any car hire available. If you want to drive, the best solution would probably to hire a car in Newcastle.

Alnwick Lionheart station but the line to Alnmouth is still being rebuilt so no connection with the National Rail system yet.

For future reference Googlw maps can more easily answer these questions. Will also give public transport options from the station.
