This fascinating exhibition is housed within the castle's walls in the Constable's Tower, and tells the tale of Alnwick Castle's most famous son.
Believed to have been born c.1364 in one of the castle's octagonal towers which flanked the old gatehouse (right), Henry 'Hotspur' Percy soon earned his name for being an impetuous and courageous warrior - leading 900 men into battle at the age of 12 or 14.
The Hotspur Exhibition explores what we know of his life and character in greater depth, using his own letters and historical records as clues to the man behind the legend. Included in the exhibition is a diagram of how Alnwick Castle is likely to have looked in Hotspur's time.
The exhibition also includes a specially-commissioned film designed to entertain adults and children alike, which outlines some of his most famous battles and his greatest adversary, James Douglas, 2nd Earl of Douglas.
Don't forget to explore the Castle Museum in the Postern Tower, which includes swords and a buckler (a small shield) retrieved from the site of the Battle of Shrewsbury, where Hotspur was killed in 1403.
