Beautiful castle and fun to explore. Be sure to play find the faces, and take a walk around the castle exterior. There are some very good views of the castle and walls.

Picturesque castle with a lot of history

BillW611, Ripon, WI
My wife and I visited Prudhoe castle with family members including a grandson and two two granddaughters. Everyone enjoyed the visit. I am a castle and history buff so that I saw the castle as an artifact of the troubled relationship between England and Scotland in the middle ages. The existence of an 18th century home in the midst of the castle was disconcerting, but the house did provide a museum that aided with telling the story of the castle. The walls and the gatehouse are still in good shape. The keep is in ruin, but still impressive. Otherwise, all the buildings in the bailey are gone but foundations survive to show their location. Thus, enough was left for me to to put a visible context to the history. As for the rest of my family, they all had their own sorts of fun, poking around the ruin or dashing around the bailey. Finally, the castle is in a beautifully wooded setting. It was well worth the trip.

Interesting site/history

This castle is in a scenic location and has a very interesting history. The rooms are very basic but the structure has many interesting features to view.

Nice castle & worth a visit

Ok, this is a small castle, but it is in quite good condition considering its history. Our visit lasted about an hour. In which time we explored the many corners of the castle, as well as walked around its outer curtain walls. We found the visitors centre had quite a lot of information available, but the exhibits were quite average & could probably do with refreshing. Overall though we enjoyed the time we had spent at Prudhoe Castle.

fantastic castle, great staff, Mark, very helpful and informative.
