Alnwick Castle, Alnwick, England
Home to the Earls and Dukes of Northumberland for 700 years, Alnwick Castle (pronounced "Annick") is one of England's largest inhabited castles. If it looks familiar, you may have seen it on the big screen -- it's appeared in a number of films, including "Elizabeth" and the first two Harry Potter movies. (Remember the scene where Harry first learns to fly a broom?) Visitors can tour a number of elegant state rooms -- don't miss the enormous library -- as well as several museums housed in the castle's towers. The beautiful gardens next door were planted over the past decade under the direction of the current Duchess of Northumberland.
