Welcome to one of Britain's most iconic castles
My wife and I are delighted to offer you a very warm welcome to Alnwick Castle, which has been my family's home for over 700 years. It is an important part of British heritage; its walls are steeped in history and filled with tales of warfare, romance and chivalry. We very much hope that you enjoy your visit to our special home.-- Ralph Percy, 12th Duke of Northumberland
