Small Castle with loads of history
The castle ground was very small with only two bits of castle standing. The exhibition is informative with a lot of regional and national history.
A very small attraction which takes less than half an hour to see so for the price it’s just too expensive
Worth a visit

Worth visiting but not a great deal to see. You enter through a shop and small display room but there isn't much detail given about the castle or the nearby Flodden Field battle. There are information boards dotted about the site but I would recommend the guide book if you want to discover more of the history.

Small but it is interesting close to flodden field tells the story of what happened. Dog friendly. It has a cafeteria there,but limited. You would be better going to the village store an cafeteria lovely food and reasonably priced. We got there and the day was wonderful so it was perfect to see what was there but it is open to the elements so bedt to visit on a clement day.

Small but interesting facts non the less. Easily done in less than an hour but was in the area and an English Heritage member so thought we would call in.
