Alnwick Castle 2020 opening and Easter holidays!

Overview

Overview

Hang on to your hats, cloaks, boots and broomsticks as magnificent Alnwick Castle in Northumberland opens its mighty doors again for 2020 on Friday 27th March!

Every day from 27th March until 25th October 2020 you can enjoy fun broomstick training (in the very place where Harry Potter was taught in the film), meet a scary Dragon Quest deep in the dungeons, marvel at the magnificent stateroom tours, historical and grounds tours, famous “on location” film tours and a variety of fascinating exhibitions and museums.

And that’s not nearly all! Here are some more highlights for the Easter holidays Saturday 4th April to Sunday 19th April, but remember to check the Alnwick Castle website as many of these activities overlap but some take place on different days. • Crafts with the Company of Artisans • Medieval Alchemist • 17th Century Re-enactment • Medieval Music • Peterkin the Jester • Harry Potter-inspired characters • Birds of prey

Access information

Alnwick Castle is a large visitor attraction, comprising a range of historical buildings and sweeping grounds, including an Inner and Outer Bailey and ‘Capability’ Brown landscapes. Unfortunately, due to the historic nature of the castle and its grounds, disabled access is limited in some areas.

The grounds of the castle include a variety of surfaces, including cobblestones, flagstones, grass, gravel and wood. These can be uneven and steep in places, with a number of steps on the Gun Terrace.
