After having the most amazing experience visiting the Birds of Prey Falconry Centre my wife, my daughter and I walked over to Walworth Castle to see if we could have a little lunch and to explore the castle.
We entered the castle and were seated in a dining room with the big round table and the big bay window. We did not stay at the castle because we lived just a short distance away in Barnard Castle; we were here just for lunch. We did notice, however, what a nice job Best Western has done transforming this historic castle into a functioning hotel while retaining all of its authenticity. After studying the menu we decided on a sandwich platter with some soup and chips and some English breakfast tea, of course. Afterwards we enjoyed a variety of pastries and cakes. The food was delicious and the staff was most accommodating. After our meal we had the greatest fun taking photographs in the big furniture and walking around the grounds.
I recommend the Best Western Walworth Castle if you’re here just for lunch and especially after visiting the Falconry Centre. less

Dear William W,
I am delighted that you enjoyed the Birds of Prey experience, and then came into the castle for lunch. I am pleased everything was to your liking and we hope you will visit the birds and the castle again soon as you don't live too far away.
