Castles of Northumberland
Northumberland is famous for its castles. Here is a quick guide to some of the best:
Located in the centre of Alnwick, this 11th century castle is the seat of the Dukes of Northumberland. Our holiday apartments in Alnwick look on to the barbican.
This stunning Norman castle rises high above the beach below. Now fully restored, it's a must see for visitors to Northumberland.
This ancient and remarkable fortress is the home of Sir Humphry Wakefield. Since 1246, the castle has been owned by the same family. The castle is set in beautiful parklands and gardens.
The walk along the cliffs to this castle, now a ruin, starts in Craster and is a very popular excursion with visitors to Northumberland.
Now in the ownership of The National Trust, Lindisfarne Castle is located on Holy Island.
Built during the 12th century, the castle is now mostly a ruin, but it is still very impressive.
