Etal

Went here as we were passing and had a bit of time to fill. It didnt take long to completely read all the information on the walk through to the castle ruins and there are only a few bits of the castle to actually see. We are members so didn't cost but if you aren't would maybe think twice about visiting as wouldn't necessarily say presents good value for money but worthwhile popping in for local history if you are a member and nearby.

Overpriced for what it is - not as good as other castles/ruins within a short drive


Martyn H, Tunstall, United Kingdom
For what it is, the admission is quite high. I'm on a week long holiday and have visited most of the castle's in Northumberland this week, I've got to be honest - for what it is, this is not value for money. You walk through a section which has posters detailing local history, granted this does have some replica weapons and armoury - but it's nothing you can't see online or learn from wikipedia. The castle grounds itself is two ruins, both of which you can't really explore. We spent less than half an hour at the site - and we even walked around twice to make the most of our money. After leaving, we went for a riverside walk away from the castle. We enjoyed this more and spent longer doing it - and that was free!

Nice in good weather

We all went to Ford & Etal in summer. Got the steam train from Etal station and once off walked to Etal castle ruins then sampled food in local cafe opposite pub. Theres a Ford downstream to splash about in good weather

Never Changes


Steve C, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
First time back to Etal Castle for years. It’s never changed, still worth a visit if you haven't been before, or being a life member of English Heritage, visit anyway.

Historic ruins

Unfortunately arrived just before the gates closed, didnt feel enough grounds to pay for short visit, can see most of the castle ruins from the perimeter and through gate,
