Story is about a fantastic historical castle, very little about Harry Potter. Better Harry Potter merchandise in Edinburgh

Beautiful castle and grounds. All the staff were very enthusiastic about their roles and we enjoyed a movie tour as part of our day. There were many interesting facts and information to see which were presented in different ways to encourage interaction. There is enough activities for a full day especially if the weather is nice.
Our party of 2 adults and 2 students did not partake of the broomstick training etc but watched other parties with much enjoyment. We felt the garden entrance ticket price was too expensive on top of the castle entrance though.

Alnwick Castlemhas something for everyone and is great value for money. We attended on a Wizards day which had plenty of additional activities including a performance without a Dumbledore and Harry Potter. However there was so much more do do, see, enjoy and learn. The free tours are excellent, activities great for kids and visit inside the castle amazing view into life inside the castle in the past and present day. The staff were really helpful and friendly. The food and drinks good quality and reasonably priced. The surroundings are unspoilt and cafe areas lovely. There’s also a well stocked gift shop and garden centre. There is ample parking at £3 per car within a very short walk from the castle and gardens. We couldn’t do everything in the day so very pleased our ticket will let the whole year. Can’t wait to go again.

We enjoyed our day on Alnwick Castle. Our kids especially enjoyed the broomstick lesson and the Dragon quest. The staff was helpful.
