Whether you're a daredevil or a bookworm (or maybe both), plan your next visit to Alnwick Castle with us

Alnwick Castle is the second largest inhabited castle in the UK. It was transformed into Hogwarts for the first two Harry Potter films and it hosts plenty of exciting events throughout the year. While there's 950 years of history to discover, this iconic castle is also hosting three exciting events this autumn. Here's what you won't want to miss out on.

Ready for an adventure? Join Alnwick Castle for their charity abseil on Saturday 23rd September! 

The first challenge is the ascent up 84 steps of the spiral staircase to the top of the castle keep. Once at the top, you will abseil on a 100ft rope down the castle walls, enjoying the breathtaking views of the grounds and pastures on the way down. All proceeds from the event will go to The People’s Kitchen – Northumberland Estates’ 2023 Charity of the Year. For full details and to reserve your spot, click here.

Calling all history lovers and bookworms! This October, Alnwick Castle will welcome two fantastic historians and authors to share an evening in conversation. 

On Tuesday 10th October, historian and broadcaster Dan Jones will be visiting Alnwick Castle as part of the book tour for his latest novel Wolves of Winter, the sequel to Sunday Times bestseller Essex Dogs. A new siege is beginning, and the Dogs are sent to attack the soaring walls of Calais, while King Edward has vowed no Englishman will leave France til this city falls. Get your tickets here

On Saturday 20th October, historian and TikTok sensation Dr Suzie Edge will be discussing her new book Vital Organs: A History of the World's Most Famous Body Parts. From Van Gogh's ear and Marie Antoinette's teeth to Queen Victoria's armpit and Marie Curie's bone marrow, the book brings together the remarkable stories of body parts that have made history!
