Come fly with us at Alnwick Castle!

Join our resident wizarding professors and take part in one of our world-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.

With our eccentric professor’s expert guidance, you shall be taught the basics of mastering a broomstick. Practice your mount and dismount before learning to curve and manoeuvre across the lawns of Alnwick Castle, more affectionately known as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, at great speeds!

Trainee flyers of any age are welcomed with open arms to this daily activity, which is free with admission to Alnwick Castle. This is an unforgettable, fun-filled event for the whole family to enjoy!

Our daily lessons are assigned by time slots which are allocated on a first come, first served basis. As this is an extremely popular activity, we recommend that visitors arrive as early as possible in order to sign-up for one of our allocated time slots. Lessons occur at intervals throughout the day, so please check the ‘What’s On’ board for specific timings and locations – as these can vary throughout the season.

Don’t forget to bring your camera and capture evidence of you and your levitating broomstick to amaze your family and friends back home!
**Please note** Broomstick training is a weather dependent activity. If our runway becomes too wet and slippery, a photo opportunity will be made available within the Artisans Courtyard as a substitute.
