Venue Description

Alnwick Castle is one of the North East’s most significant tourist attractions, brimming with history and magic. Home to the Duke of Northumberland's family for over 700 years, Alnwick Castle is the second largest inhabited castle in the UK, and was the film location for Harry Potter's Hogwarts.


Unfortunately, due to the historic nature of the castle and its grounds, disabled access is limited in some areas. The grounds of the castle include a variety of surfaces, including cobblestones, flagstones, grass, gravel and wood. These can be uneven and steep in places, with a number of steps on the Gun Terrace. There is a one-person lift available to the State Rooms.
