Have you ever seen a lion before? Well after coming on this trip you’ll feel like you don’t need to see the real thing. Join us as we combine the historical importance of Alnwick Castle and fascinating anecdotes of the Percy Family with the wonderful magical world of Harry Potter. Enjoy the splendour and beauty of the castle’s State  Rooms featuring the design of the Italian Renaissance and many priceless paintings and ornaments. Learn why the castle is perhaps the greatest Norman stronghold in the North of England and also the wonderful films and tv series that were filmed here. From the castle we will take you past the Alnwick Gardens to the Alnwick Treehouse and up to the largest second-hand bookshop in Europe, Barter Books. Finally, we shall venture back to the market square via the last remaining tower that kept out the Scots during the Civil War and also a hotel that contains the dining room of the sister ship of the Titanic. The day will finish with some samples of Lindisfarne Mead at Taste of Northumbria…or Alnwick Rum…..or even some Hadrian’s Wall Gin. You’ll be broomstick flying in no time!
