In 2015 Alnwick Castle again welcomed the cast and crew of the major ITV drama, Downton Abbey. This follows the success of the 2014 Christmas special which saw Rose’s father-in-law, Lord Sinderby take Brancaster Castle (Alnwick Castle) in Northumberland for the grouse shooting season.
During a busy two weeks over the summer the team filmed for the 2015 series, again using the Castle's State Rooms and grounds. Meanwhile in Alnwick town, the cast and crew are rapidly becoming familiar faces.
Back in real life an exhibition of the 2014 filming of this ever popular show is proving a great hit with this season's visitors to the Castle. Featuring photography, costumes, and props from the filming, group tours are also available but require booking.
