We had our first broomstick flying lesson at Alnwick Castle in the UK. The beautiful castle sits along England’s North East coast and is not only the site used in the Harry Potter films for broomstick flying lessons, it is also the current home to the Duke and Dutchess of Northumberland. We had a tour and the girls and I had our flying lessons here too.
I never got off the ground. One would have suspected that I would have been a natural at broomstick flying. What do you think? Am I too old to learn to fly, or should I try again?
