Overview

The magnificent coastal setting of this completely restored medieval castle, perched high on a bluff overlooking the North Sea in Northumberland, has attracted the eye of many a film director, and Bamburgh Castle is a “film set” several times over. The museum housed within is a treasure trove of local history, with collections of military artifacts, paintings, china, and furniture. The empty and unspoiled beaches below the castle are perfect for long bracing walks. There is ample car parking, and a tea room and gift shop are available. The castle is licensed to perform civil wedding ceremonies. The castle is not easily reached by public transport. Check website for more details.
