Alnwick Castle and Cragside

Recently voted Best Large Visitor Attraction in Britain, Alnwick Castle is the family home of the Duke of Northumberland. It has been owned by the same family since 1309 and was originally built to defend England from the Scots.

Often called ‘The Windsor of the North’ the State Rooms contain a remarkable collection of portraits and furnishings. See the dungeon, follow in the footsteps of Harry Potter and walk through the new garden to visit an amazing Tree House.

The revolutionary home of Lord Armstrong, Cragside was the first house in the world to be lit by electricity. Armstrong was a Victorian innovator, engineer and gunmaker, who asked the architect Norman Shaw to transform Cragside into a proper country mansion. He made his fortune in water-driven hydraulics, for example the engines that originally lifted Tower Bridge in London.
