Experience Northumberland at a different level from magnificent Bamburgh Castle.
Whether it’s the thrill of seeing the coast open out beneath you, with mesmerising views towards the Farne Islands, Holy Island and Bamburgh village that you just can’t see from anywhere else. Or glorious staterooms, filled with treasures from around the world, including the castle’s centrepiece – The King’s Hall, discover a castle like no other.
Standing guard above the spectacular Northumberland coastline for over 1,400 years, step through centuries of history at our nine-acre site.
Explore the real Last Kingdom, an Anglo Saxon citadel where saint kings ruled the Kingdom of Northumbria. A Norman stronghold, Royal seat and the first castle in the world to fall to gunpowder.
And discover the magic of Bamburgh Castle that captured the heart and mind of one of the Victorian’s greatest inventors, William George Armstrong.
