Alnwick Castle

We made a foray down south today...all the way into England! Off we popped to Northumberland and Alnwick Castle, family home of the Percys. You've probably seen Alnwick films! "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" (Kevin Costner's) and several "Harry Potter" scenes (including Quidditch, the Flying Ford Anglia, and Hagrid's dragging of the Christmas tree) were set at Alnwick.

Our day included broomstick lessons, a falconry demonstration, and a perilous quest through the children's play area.
