The next stop and star attraction of the tour is Alnwick Castle*. Here you will have maximum time to explore the castle and the gardens. As the seat of the Duke of Northumberland this is the second largest inhabited castle in England and has been lived in for over 700 years. It is full of fascinating things to see and mysteries to uncover. While you walk around the castle you may recognise it as a location from some of the Harry Potter films and Downton Abbey.
