You probably know the majestic Alnwick Castle from a little film called Harry Potter, where it stood in for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Explore the incredible interiors, take a tour of the grounds, practice medieval crafts, and even battle dragons and fly broomsticks – this is a 1000-year-old castle come to life!
Does Alnwick Castle seem a little... familiar? That's probably because it's starred in countless movies and TV shows, from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone to Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and, err, Transformers: The Last Knight.
But there's more to this ancient fortress than its movie star status, it's the second largest inhabited castle in the UK, and steeped in almost 1000 years of turbulent history.
Inside, you can explore the lavish Renaissance-style State Rooms (including a stunning private library), and check out exhibitions dedicated to William de Percy and Harry Hotspur.
Up topside, stretch your legs with a tour of the castle grounds, before testing your mettle in Dragon Quest. Then round off the perfect castle day out with a spot of broomstick training on the lawn. Quidditch, anyone?
