I realised my history with Chillingham when I looked through some of my parents photos, there are pictures of me aged around 7 years old in the gardens at Chillingham. Every time I visit Northumberland I'm drawn to Chillingham, it's an intriguing place, where you never quite know what you are going to find from one room to the next.... More

I'd done some research on the Castle prior to visiting so knew it had some serious history; however, nothing prepared us for the 'eclectic' mix which is strewn throughout the building! This isn't to say it was an unpleasant experience because it wasn't. The job of renovating the Castle is, I imagine, very expensive and time consuming but I believe... More

Been wanting to visit since a friend recommended a look to the torture chamber there. Love the architecture of the place. All staff were lovely, friendly and approachable. Inside was exactly as I imagined it to be. I could see Sir Humphrey's antiquated eclectic collection of artefacts throughout the castle. Which to me added more character to the place! I... More

We had reservations about visiting Chillingham Castle having checked out previous reviews. We started our visit by having some lunch... A fly buzzing around inside where the food was being displayed/stored wasn't the best of starts and the overall cleanliness of the area left a lot to be desired. Granted this area is one of the old castle rooms but... More

We visited this place in 1986 before the renovations started and were impressed by the plans, BUT going back was so disappointing. The place is a mess. I am amazed that it is allowed to open on health and safety grounds alone. 4 coach parties were queueing for the cafe, so it appears to be making money but where it... More

We booked the Lookout appartment for a Friday to Sunday stay. We stayed alone on the Friday night before being joined on the Saturday by a couple who are friends. OK - we had read all the reviews beforehand and have also been along last year as day trippers so we knew what to expect. As other reviewers have said,... More

I was really looking forward to the castle visit and on approach, I was most impressed. The building and grounds were stunning,although the castle still needs a lot of TLC. However when you enter it looks like, as another reviewer perfectly put it, Steptoe's yard. Very little seemed to belong to this impressive building and it would have looked better... More

3rd time we have been to Chillingham Castle. We enjoy going there, as each time we go we feel something different in each room. The main rooms we felt any odd activity were the King Edward room, the Chapel and the torture chamber. Would thoroughly love to do an over night stay or Ghost tour. More tour guides wouldn't go...
