What to expect

This tour is a must do for those who have read the Harry Potter books, seen the movies or ever dreamed of becoming a wizard. You'll catch a glimpse of what it's like to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry, learn how to cast spells and fly on broomsticks.

There's no guarantees that you'll become a bonafide wizard on this tour but you'll get the next best thing! Used as a filming location for Hogwarts, Alnwick Castle has both a medieval and magical charm about it. The castle dates from the 11th century and possesses a rich and interesting history, a few Hollywood secrets and its very own Duke and Duchess who continue to reside there today.

This tour is bound to appeal to those interested in travelling through the border counties of Scotland and England, seeking jaw-dropping views and stunning coastlines.
