Introduction

Castle Collectables and Northumberland Estates Task 1b Castle Collectibles customers don't really vary that much because all of the products they make are aimed places/attractions where tourists visit. Their main customers are Alnwick castle, the Alnwick Gardens and Alnwick Tourist Information. This is because they don't sell straight to the tourists they sell to other businesses.
