Alnwick Castle

Known as the ‘Windsor of the North,’ Alnwick Castle is the second largest inhabited castle in England and home to the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland, whose ancestors have lived here since 1309.

Dramatically situated on the edge of the town, the castle battlements rise above stunning Capability Brown grounds and resonate with history, from the 14th century exploits of Harry Hotspur, to the grisly Gunpowder Plot. Now renowned as the magical setting for ‘Hogwarts’ in the Harry Potter films, as well Robin Hood Prince of Thieves and numerous television programmes, it is true deja vu territory.
