Dunstanburgh Castle

Overview

Overview

The ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle tower over the Northumberland coastline. It is an ideal family day out with a picnic area, fantastic views, and it is not far from the Scottish Borders.

The Castle was built on the most magnificent scale, and rivalled any castle of its day. The dramatic ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle stand on a remote headland, reached by a beautiful coastal walk from nearby Craster.

Visitors can explore the great gatehouse and the imposing Lilburn Tower, which commands stunning views north towards Bamburgh Castle. The magnificent sea views and unique location make this the perfect spot to escape from the stresses of modern life.

Dunstanburgh Castle is owned by The National Trust, and maintained and managed by English Heritage. Entry is free to National Trust members and English Heritage members. Parking is in Craster, from where it's a picturesque 1.5 mile coastal walk to the castle.
