Alnwick Castle

“Ralph Percy inherited the dukedom of Northumberland after the death of his elder brother in 1995. As well as management of the more traditional estate businesses of agriculture, forestry and minerals, the Duke has overseen expansion of the portfolio to include planning and development and commercial property at home and also abroad. With the Duchess, Jane, they have developed Alnwick Castle as a significant visitor attraction while the Duchess has masterminded a garden renaissance in the creation of The Alnwick Garden.”
