    Today we travel to Alnwick, once the administrative town for the whole of Northumberland. Here, the castle has dominated since 1096 when construction began in order to control and protect the border. It has numerous defences such as a 2-metre thick wall and a 7-metre deep moat. It is the second largest inhabited castle in England, second only to Windsor Castle, and has been home to the Percy family for over 700 years.

    More recently, it has been a filming location for some of the Harry Potter movies, Downton Abbey and countless other TV shows and films.

    The town of Alnwick itself is a bustling medieval market town, with twisting cobbled streets and an eclectic collection of shops.
