    Had an unexpected job to do, got a call asking me if I would take a couple of German tourists to the place where Harry Potter
    is filmed, so away to Alnwick we went. You can just see my black taxi to the right of the picture

    Alnwick Castle is the second largest inhabited castle in England, and has been the home of the Percys, Earls and Dukes of Northumberland
    since 1309.

    The castle is well known now as Hogwarts in the film Harry Potter.

    Ok so I dropped my customers of in the main carpark give them my number for when they wanted me to pick them up and found a nice free
    car park about 5 minutes drive away got my camera and walked towards the woods.

    I turned a corner and heard someone shouting my name, and to my surprise it was Delboy (private joke, Delboy's from my Majorca site).

    I have been to Alnwick before but still enjoyed the afternoon there again, its well worth a visit, I noticed most of the car parks were £3.50
    for the day which is not as bad as I thought it would be. Lots of little B&B's a few Hotels and alot of bars there.

    More info to be found here---

    I had a night out in Dunfermline many years ago with an old school friend that moved back to Scotland. It was just before I got married. We went to an old bar called the County and I remember a big night club there as well but cant remember the name of it though.It was a great night out, this was back in 1993.
