What an absolute treat to find ourselves all alone at Alnwick Castle! Well, not quite alone, but with so few people that we managed to get a few rare shots of the castle and grounds without anyone in them!
What’s the secret? Well, you can see from the skies it had turned into quite a cold day, but also, we didn’t arrive until almost last entry time, having spent so much time having fun at the museum. I wouldn’t recommend doing this unless you know you’re going to go back another day however, as the entrance fee is high for just one visit of a couple of hours (you pay once for an all-year ticket). We are lucky enough to live quite nearby though, so we will definitely be back!
We’ll probably find ourselves sharing Alnwick Castle with a few more Muggle tourists as the season goes on though!
