Alnwick Castle is one of the most iconic castles in Britain. It's also one of the most popular visitor attractions in the North East of England. Every year thousands of people from around the world come to the Castle. Whether to learn more about its history, explore its film and TV connections or to simply have fun, when people visit we want them to have the best day possible.

Alnwick Castle's staff are one big team; every member of staff is valued and plays an important part in ensuring visitors have the great experience they expect.
