We will have an opportunity to tour the magnificent castle and learn more about its place in Scottish history. –More than 4,000 alleged witches were put to death in Edinburgh. The castle moat was used to dispose of their bodies, who were thrown from the castle into the water below. If the witches drowned, they were given a full pardon, and if they survived, they were burned at the stake.
This afternoon we will have high tea at the Balmoral Hotel – this is where J.K. Rowling spent some time in room 552 writing the last of the Harry Potter books – The Deathly Hallows. She signed the statue of Hermes, Greek Goddess of Travel, located in the room.

Today we will take a day trip to the beautiful Alnwick Castle – better known to Harry Potter fans as Hogwarts! Alnwick Castle sits on the boarder of England and Scotland and is the second largest inhabited castle in England; it has been home to the Duke of Northumberland’s family, the Percys, for over 700 years. Parts of Alnwick Castle were used for scenes of Hogwarts Castle in the first two Harry Potter films! One of the most notable scenes is where Harry first learns to fly a broomstick in a lesson taught by Madame Hooch. The castle is a site to behold!
