Alnwick Castle

Overview

Overview

Alnwick Castle is the one of the largest inhabited castles in England; it has been home to the Duke of Northumberland’s family, the Percys, for over 700 years.

Combining magnificent medieval architecture with spectacular Italianate State Rooms, Alnwick Castle is one of the UK’s most significant heritage destinations. In recent years, it has taken starring roles in a number of film and television productions, most famously featuring as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the Harry Potter films and as Brancaster Castle in ITV’s Downton Abbey.

Alnwick’s State Rooms boast one of the finest private art collections in the country, including paintings by Canaletto, Titian, Van Dyck, Turner, and Dobson, while the Drawing Room is home to the priceless Cucci cabinets, originally created for King Louis XIV of France.

The castle’s rich history is brimming with drama, intrigue, and extraordinary people; from a gunpowder plotter and visionary collectors to Harry Hotspur, medieval England’s most celebrated knight.

The Castle is brought to life with an exciting daily programme of activities and seasonal performance events during the peak season.

Conveniently situated less than a mile off the A1 between Newcastle and Edinburgh, Alnwick Castle is an ideal destination for group visits.
