Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry – Meets Downton Abbey

Downton Abbey is been having one of those intense seasons and season 5 is starting to shape up like it’s going to be fun. The cast and crew have been seen using Alnwick castle (Harry Potter Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry) for some important aspect of the television series. It seems plausible that some new Duke and Duchess might be making themselves known next season.

The one thing we all would like to see is Lady Mary, Anna, Mr. Bates and the rest dressed up in Quidditch uniforms out on the lawn playing an old fashioned game of throw the ball through the hole. Somewhere within the crevices of the castle, there is a trapped door that encases all these uniforms.

During the time of the shooting, many parts of the castle are off limits to the already massive visitors to the castle.
