Bamburgh Castle

Steeped in history and overlooking the dramatic Northumberland coast, Bamburgh Castle has great views of the Farne Islands - a haven for seabirds - Holy Island and, inland, the Cheviots and the magnificence of the Northumberland National Park.

Although Bamburgh Castle as seen today is, at the earliest, of Norman origin, a tumultuous past and repeated change of ownership have endowed it a chequered heritage. Its fortune changed in the 19th century, however, when the first Lord Armstrong spent a staggering £1 million on renovations. It remains in the Armstrong family to this day.

Visitors can view rooms in Bamburgh Castle that illustrate life during olden times, including the massive chains that were used for salvaging shipwrecked goods, fabulous armour and the Keep, with walls between nine and 12 feet thick!
