The Hog’s Head Inn, Alnwick, Northumberland

Named after the tavern in the Harry Potter books and films for which Alnwick is now famous for, The Hog’s Head Inn is a few minutes’ drive from Alnwick Castle, which doubled as Hogwarts in the first two boy-wizard films. The inn is well-placed for exploring both the coast and interior including the Northumberland National Park home to the Cheviots, Coquetdale and Hadrian’s Wall.
