Wonderful Castle to visit, specially on a sunny day. Amazing keep, defensive, but alsoto live in. Chapel looks very nice, and walls give it the perfect settlement for this historic attraction. Warm staff at shop (that is small but acceptable)

Fantastic Castle, it is a lot larger on the inside than it appears from the outside. Good value at £20 for 4 of us including car parking. The Dog was free. One of many beautiful castles in Northumberland.

This was our first visit with my wife and two children aged 5 and 2yrs. When you go in the shop at the site is quite small and doesn't have a lot for sale though they do offer hot drinks. On a nice day I would bring a picnic to eat on the grass or picnic tables inside the castle... More

One of the very best castles I have visited. Friendly staff and superbly run. They manage to convey the essence of the history of the building and the famous Percy family. Well worth a visit!

It sits on a hill, so the views are tremendous. It is mostly a ruin, but lots to see still with lots for kids to climb around. The upper part is all open to the elements, but great views from the windows.

A pleasant hour spent learning about the history of the castle and the people who lived and worked there. We use the audio guide provided as part of the enterenc fee. It's a pity there are "no climbing" signs all over the place as I am sure this is the type of place kids would love to burn of excess... More

Lovely castle which is very well looked after. Actually far bigger than it looks with lots and lots to explore. Plenty of opportunity was kids to run around and play knights!
