Alnwick Castle, home of the Duke of Northumberland, attracts over 800,000 eager visitors every year. Once a royal fortress, Alnwick Castle has made numerous appearances in film and TV. Eagle-eyed visitors will recognize the castle and grounds from Blackadder, Robin Hood, Downton Abbey and, of course, Harry Potter - where the castle largely stood in for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry.

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.
