Alnwick castle

According to my sources, ang shooting site ng Harry potter ay ang Alnwick castle, nanakapakita sa mga picture na ito.

Alnwick Castle was built in the mid 12th century, with a circular keep with five semi-circular towers adorned with pinnacles and battlements surrounding the great Castle. When you enter the second and third courts, through massive towers, you reach the inner court, that is the very center of the fortress. It is the second largest inhabited castle in England, second to Windsor Castle. It is the home of the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland whose family, the Percys have lived here since 1309. You may walk its wonderful halls and see such rooms as the Library, the Guard Chambers, the Saloon, the Drawing Room, and the Chapel, to name a few. It was a very large castle with lots to view inside and out.

Movies such as: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Elizabeth, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, and Ivanhoe are a few of the films filmed at Alnwick Castle.
