Come fly with us at Alnwick Castle!

Join our resident wizarding professors and take part in one of our famous broomstick training sessions, on the very spot where Harry had his first flying lesson in the film production of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

"We did the broomstick lessons and it was absolutely hilarious! Can't wait to come back. Thank you for a wonderful day."

Sessions take place daily at intervals - check the What's On board for times on arrival, as times vary each day. Sessions take place outside (and therefore are weather permitting)

Pre-book Broomstick Training Sessions
This season we will be trialling out pre-bookable broomstick training sessions. These will take place on Bowburn Park (just outside the grounds of Alnwick Castle) at various times during the school holidays. You will still require an Alnwick Castle admission ticket to participate along with a copy of your online pre-booked session ticket. If there are no tickets available for the day of your visit, we may still have tickets available for sessions in the castle which are ticketed on a first come first served basis.

Please note we have now stopped trialling our pre-bookable broomstick training sessions. If you are planning to visit during the remaing days of the summer holidays we will be running extra sessions during the day within the castle. Tickets for these sessions are distributed on a first come first served basis.
