There are a good few castles to visit on a trip through Northumberland. We’ve previously visited Bamburgh Castle so this time we opted for Alnwick Castle. It holds some impressive celebrity claims to fame – having been used as a set for Harry Potter and Downton Abbey.
There are plenty of areas to explore around the impressive castle grounds. For me, the exteriors held the most interest. I tried to capture the shapes of the buildings; the curved turrets butting up against imposing, angular walls.
