Touring Alnwick Castle
Alnwick Castle is located in Northumberland, which is in the north east of England.
The Castle is most famously known for it’s cameo in the early Harry Potter movies and presently serves as the residence of the Duke of Northumberland and his family. It is also famous for the beautiful stately gardens just outside the walls of the Castle, which were unfortunately not in season during the time of year that I visited.
This is one of the more beautiful castles that I’ve seen in some time. The gardens really lend life to the already stunning castle. The castle is entire and whole, unlike most of the ruins that dot the landscape of the United Kingdom, and the interior rooms are positively beautiful in rich furnishings.
Here are some of the highlights from touring the Castle…
