Alnwick Castle

Alnwick Castle offers all its visitors a day out that will really fire the imagination. It has been home to the Duke of Northumberland’s family, the Percys for more than 700 years and is the great fortress of the North. The castle’s vibrant history and breath-taking architecture - set within glorious ‘Capability’ Brown landscape - make it one of the North East’s most iconic venues.

Hidden within the walls of this medieval stronghold are fun and entertainment for all. The sumptuous State Rooms with a world class collection of paintings, furniture, porcelain, works of art and treasures. Alnwick Castle has taken several starring roles on the big screen, not least as Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films, making it a truly cinematic backdrop to a day out or a special day.

Every member of the family is bound to have fun with lots of Easter activities, the medieval Knight's Quest arena, dragons and magic. Alnwick Castle is a magnificent venue for civil wedding ceremonies and receptions, with a long history of entertaining and hospitality and years of experience in event management.
