Prudhoe castle

Dougie M,
It well worth a look many things to see if you like history there is a small shop with goods worth having

Not the best Northumbrian castle

Nice view of castle on approach from the small car park. The mill pond and waterfall feeding the old water mill are separated by the entrance driveway. You're able to walk around the surrounding grounds and woodland without paying. Once you've paid (shop located in the small Manor House next to the keep) you can access the ruins of the keep, inner keep, hall, entrance gate and chapel. There is an exhibition room across from the shop. A few rooms are closed off (private). There isn't a huge amount to see but loved the small chapel (accessed by steep stairs near the entrance gate). The wild flowers growing in the ruins gave it a lovely feel. Dogs are allowed on leads and our 4-legged friend really enjoyed his visit. This is an English Heritage property so there is always a push on membership. What really irked me is that the entry fee including gift aid was entered (by Susan) without checking with me first. I told her I didn't want to pay gift aid (I'm unemployed anyway) and it was removed. Other than that, a pleasant way to pass an hour.

Prudhoe Under Siege Reenactment

Prudhoe Castle was built in the 11th Century and eventually abandoned to become a ruin in the 18th Century. At times it was owned by the Percy family (they own Alnwick). It withstood two sieges by Scottish armies and that is what the reenactment was about. There was no parking available so we parked on the roadside just up the hill. The reenactors had a campsite inside the castle and they ran games for children to participate in. The castle was attacked several times during the day and all the participants were very enthusiastic. Well worth seeing and you get to see the castle as well.

Great way to pass an hour

We love visiting historic sites, so when we found out that there was a castle in Prudhoe we had to visit. The grounds going into the castle were lovely with s little pond and a walk around the outside of the castle walls. Inside the castle you can visit the chapel and look around the exhibition rooms. There is also a small gift shop that sells snacks and drinks. The great thing was that the castle is dog friendly so we could bring along our pooch.

Interesting Castle

A good walk up to the castle with a pond on one side with a waterfall & mill on the other. Once inside there is a chapel in the gatehouse which the kids loved, there's a little bit more to see around the walls. With information in the manor house which is built in to the castle with the shop & games for the kids up stairs. The shop is probably the best of the three castles we visited.
