“Once home to the kings of ancient Northumbria, Bamburgh Castle is one of Northumberland's most iconic buildings. The Bamburgh castle we see today is a relatively recent structure, built by famed industrialist the first Lord Armstrong at vast cost in late Victorian times. Lord Armstrong was also responsible for building Cragside House, Gardens & Estates. But the castle boasts a much longer history. There have been settlements on the site since prehistoric times and the regular archaeological digs that take place on the site have unearthed some spectacular finds.”

“Built on the most magnificent scale, Dunstanburgh Castle stands on a remote headland in Northumberland. Owned by English Heritage this castle ruin has fantastic views. We like to park in Craster and walk over to the castle - a great little walk around 25 minutes. Then return to have some food at The Jolly Fisherman a traditional pub with cosy character and great food. ”
