Description

Home of the Dukes of Northumberland for nearly a thousand years, the Alnwick Castle is a treasure trove of history. You will not find a dry, dusty ruin, but a lively vibrant place that is the second largest inhabited castle in the country (after Windsor). Beside the usual attractions of an old castle, such as battlements and dungeons, Alnwick has many more things to offer. There is an enviable collection of fine art, including paintings by Van Dyck, Canaletto, and Titian. The Northumberland Fusiliers also house their regimental collection here. And if you still can't persuade your children of the castle's merits as a day out, tell them it was the location for Hogwarts school in the Harry Potter film. That should do the trick. The magnificent castle is home to a number of events from time to time. Check website for more details.
