Alnwick Castle


Alnwick Castle is the second largest inhabited castle in the UK; home to the Duke of Northumberland’s family, the Percys, for over 700 years. Combining magnificent medieval architecture with sumptuous Italianate State Rooms, Alnwick Castle is one of the UK’s most significant heritage destinations. In recent years it has also taken starring roles in a number of film and television productions, featuring as Brancaster Castle in Downton Abbey and Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the Harry Potter films. Daily activities include guided tours of the castle’s history and film locations, and our world-famous Broomstick Training, while special performances from falconers, jesters and medieval alchemists take place throughout the year.
