Seems expensive for non English Heritage members


bluelizard, N Wales
It was half an hour off closing time when we stopped in Etal plus it looked small from the entrance so decided against visiting. Despite its small size, we like to take our time visiting historical monuments. Also £4.60 per adult (without Gift Aid) seemed a bit steep. We could see a fair bit of the small castle from the road and mound so took some photos and then walked along the nearby River Till with our dog. I’d return if I could make a morning of it i.e. combine the castle with an art gallery / refreshments in the village.

Small but attractive castle


KevinRSheffield_UK, Sheffield, UK
Only the two main towers survive and you are confined to ground level but there are plenty of interesting features. For example, I've never seen so many stonemason's marks in one room. It won't take you more than 20-40 minutes, depending on your capacity for looking at 500 year old walls, but it's a good 20-40 minutes. To add to the stonework there is a small but informative display after you enter, half on the nearby Battle of Flodden Field and half on the history of the estate villages of Ford and Etal.

Another hidden gem!!


Darren A, Castleton, United Kingdom
Etal Castle is well worth a visit....they have a pretty cool exhibition going on there at the moment that explains & details the Battle of Flodden!! Doesn't take long to see it all, so when your done take the 4 mile drive & check out the site of where the battle of Flodden took place!!!!

A ruined castle


FlorianFY, Bispham, United Kingdom
A ruined castle managed by English Heritage. It's debatable whether it is worth the entrance fee but its in lovely spot with the neighbouring village of Etal right by it.

Hire a bike around Ford and Etal


HeleneEH1, Dorset, United Kingdom
We had a fun day out riding the country lanes around the Ford and Etal estate after hiring a tandem from the Heatherslaw visitor centre. We booked in advance over the phone with a very helpful receptionist and were only charged for half a day as we couldn't collect the bike before 10.30am Helmets and a padlock are included in the price. Super day out with lots of visitor attractions along the way.
