Relive scenes from Harry Potter and Downton Abbey in the magnificent setting of Alnwick Castle
An iconic castle in Northumberland made famous by the movie "Harry Potter" and then again by the television series "Downton Abbey", Alnwick Castle is the second largest inhabited castle in England after Windsor Castle, and is visited by over 800,000 people per year. Dubbed as ‘Britain’s answer to Versailles’, this medieval structure's fierce walls are contrasted by its opulent Victorian interior. The surrounding Alnwick Gardens features a viewing fountain, tree house, cafe, and ‘poisoned garden’.
