The Ghost Tour lasted approx 2 hours and was an excellent trip through life's macabre past and stories of the 'after-life' current activities. Disappointed... More

I stayed here with my father about ten years ago. We made it our "base camp" for our travels throughout Scotland & England. We never stayed in a castle before & we were glad this was our first. It was reasonable & very roomy! We explored the castle at our leisure & the caretakers were very friendly. My father enjoyed... More

We visited Chillingham castle courtesy of a discount offer, accompanied by our 2 grandchildren, and had a great visit. The eclectic collection amassed by Sir Humphrey, is unique and very different to many historic homes, in that you are not roped off from the exhibits but actually encouraged to touch and experience many of the objects, which makes for a...

Another fabulous castle in Northumberland but the torture chambers ensure it sticks in your memory. Nice tea rooms too. I would love to have a special event here!

This is an interesting castle - with a really scary torture exhibition and tales of ghosts! It has one of the most eclectic mixes of exhibits I've ever seen! It's supposed to be one of the most haunted castles in the country! It also has lovely gardens and - if you can get there early enough - you can see... More

A very"quirky" castle,full of the weirdest of artifacts Well worth a visit. The gardens are extensive and dogs can be walked in the gounds outside. Beware of the cafe---we had cheese scones which may well have been baked when the castle was built!!! Stale did not begin to describe their antiquity The coffees were also only luke warm and the...

This is my 3rd year going to Chillingham Castle for the weekend. It's a fascinating place, beautiful grounds & so much history. The rooms, well u are in a castle that is extremely old, & therefore furniture is old & the whole castle is dated, but that's what a castle of this age & history is all about. The bedding,... More
