“The ones that love us never really leave us. You can always find them, in here.” - Sirius Black, (Harry Potter).
Thanks to the deeply romantic vision of former inhabitant of Alnwick Castle: Elizabeth Percy; whose passion for the castle and surrounding landscapes, was responsible for turning the castle into a family residence, and transforming the countryside. Alnwick Castle is the second largest inhabited castle in the UK: Grade 1 Listed and country home in the town of Alnwick in Northumberland, and has taken the enchanting role as Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films. Within its prestigious walls, lies an abundance of rich and fascinating historical events. With over 950 years of history beneath its Norman belt, since 1309, the castle walls have woven themselves into the warp and weft of the Percy family bloodline, and has been the glorious backdrop to tragedy, passion and conspiracies. Journey back in time, and enjoy fabulous art collections, opulent State Rooms, medieval crafts and and other magical discoveries.
