Ancient monument

Fascinating visit to a place I’d never heard of til last year, despite having been brought up nearby ( Blaydon and Winlaton). Very small and a bit pricey if you dont have English Heritage membership as we do. I managed to have a good look around but sadly it wasn’t very accessible for my husband in his electric wheelchair.

Lots of history
Jul 2021 • Couples
First visit to Prudhoe castle. The car park is a few minutes walk away but a beautiful view of the castle and millpond on approach. Reception were very welcoming there is a small gift shop and toilet in the same area.
The grounds are pretty and interesting lots of information about the history. There are tables available for picnics.
Although quite small still lots of interest.

Worth a visit

It’s a small yet interesting place to visit and a good spot for a picnic - you can get a drink from the shop. Best view is from the access road looking over the millpond.

There was nobody there when we arrived. No sign up saying back in 5 or any such thing

Ironically 5 minutes and you are done at this site

Toilets locked and everyone had to use a single disabled adapted toilet. So everyone using one single toilet when others were available. NOT a covid friendly decision

Not worth the money

We wouldn't recommend if it was free

My Visit to Prudhoe Castle
Jun 2021
Although a lot smaller than what I thought, still a great place to visit, especially as I was using my annual English Heritage membership for the first time. Travelled on the train from Newcastle to Prudhoe which took all of 20 minutes or so. On arrival the member of staff on reception was very polite and helpful and the place was also Covid safe. While I was there, there were plenty of kids running around and enjoying themselves. The grounds inside are ideal for picnics and there were plenty of these going on. There's also a very big grass area outside the castle where you can have a good wander.

Quick visit

Knowing that the castle was small it really is quick to look around. Disappointing that the entire house is not open to view. The experience is expensive but another castle ticked off the list.

Nice castle
Sep 2020 • Couples
It's a nice castle but not big. Will be good to kill an hour.
Not much history to read up on but it only cost a few pounds to get in.
I wouldn't go back but was worth visiting as I'm from the local area and didn't Knoe it existed.

Disappointed
Sep 2020
Yes is it is quiet and historical but, it can only provide a brief visit and it is not worth making a journey of any distance to visit.

Not too easy to find and with limited parking, we found the visit disappointing and, had we not been members of English Heritage, expensive. The site can be visited in short order, perhaps 30 minutes. there is a detailed guide book but a little prior knowledge of the context of the property and the broader regional history is all that is needed.

Overall it was a disappointing visit.

A quiet little place
Aug 2020
This castle has a lot of history. It is mainly ruins with a small museum with information. The keep was shut due to covid19. I enjoyed a walk around the castle. There are some picnic benches to sit outside.
