Shame it was shut ! :angry:

I assume they have an opening season from April to October then closed over the winter months like many other places.

We went up there in October 2007 for a short break in Northumberland.

At Alnwick we had a choice between the castle and the gardens for the time we had available (and the money, - they are quite expensive)

As my wife is a keen gardener we chose to look at Alnwick gardens, so the castle is on our list of places to visit in the future.

So if you do go Richard let us know what its like.

Barter Books, Britain's biggest second-hand bookshop. Given a long time and a LOT of money I could enjoy myself in there - well worth a visit if you are in the region.

Not making another Harry Potter film are they? :o

Or a new version of Spaceman and King Arthur.

They were filming that when we last visited about 30 years ago.

Must be time to go again.

Seems that the castle is regularly used as a film set then.

Northumberland seems to have more than its fair share of castles, all of them interesting and well worth visiting so I don't know why they have singled out this one to use in films.

I take it that Alnwick Castle is Hogwarts School.
