Overview

Alnwick Castle offers history on a grand scale; it is one of the largest inhabited castles in Europe and has been home to the Duke of Northumberland’s family, the Percys, through 700 years of drama, intrigue, tragedy and romance.

At the castle there is so much to entertain adults and children alike, making a family day out full of fun and history. Tickets to the castle can be validated for 12 months at no extra cost, so you can take advantage of all the fantastic events throughout the season.

Expect visits from fire-eating and stilt-walking jesters, Potter-inspired wizards, master falconers, medieval minstrels and skilled artisans, giving performances and activities all free with admission.

Aspiring knights and princesses can follow in the footsteps of Alnwick’s Harry Hotspur, as they dress up in medieval finery and try their hand at free traditional crafts, swordplay and medieval games in the bustling Knight’s Quest arena.

Alnwick’s rich history is brought to life with engaging guided tours, including behind-the-scenes anecdotes from the castle’s starring film roles. Potter fans young and old can also take part in Alnwick’s infamous broomstick training sessions, led by entertaining wizard professors.

The castle's sumptuous State Rooms, in Italian Renaissance style, are filled with one of the country’s finest private art and furniture collections, including work by Canaletto, Titian and Van Dyck. Children can keep their eyes peeled for the fluffy owls and dragons hidden in each room!
