Tips from locals
We’ve got some fantastic castles to explore and Bamburgh is just one of them.
By car or bus. Best explored on a day trip to Bamburgh, seahouses and a Farne Islands boat tour!
Probably the most photographed castle in Northumberland, it's in a beautiful village with stunning views of the coast.
Wonderful castle to visit and the beach is second to none. Dogs are not allowed in the castle but the beach is very dog friendly.
