Not bad for a wander

A decent place not the biggest but it does have a small museum you can spend an hour in reading about the history of the castle and local area .

Seems expensive for non English Heritage members

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

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!!

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

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.
