You must bring your own food and drinks requirements, and cooking facilities in the rooms are provided. The...

We recently visited on a combined cattle & castle ticket. It was one of the hottest days in Northumberland and we didn't know what to expect. The lady at the reception in the Armoury was lovely and friendly. We bought the leaflet and the guide to the castle, as we like to read about our visits later. That was the...

The building has some interest and contains a small quantity of relevant items. However, very nearly all of the content of furniture and objects has been assembled from the sale rooms of the UK and has no connection whatever with the building. It is part stage dressing, part junk shop and almost entirely bogus. The 'torture chamber' is a particular...

right from the start a different experience, as you walk through the woods to the main entrance( disabled visitors can drive straight to the entrance ) enter through the portcullis into a never before experienced castle visit, everything is open to view and not locked behind glass, really open close up experience of medieval Britain right up to present everyday...

It was a really pleasant drive upto the castle and we were greeted in castle style to large iron gates and a tree lined drive to the castle. Its an aesthetically pleasing castle to look at from the front with...

Today was the 4th time in 10 years that we have visited the castle this time with our 6year old son. We love this chaotic eccentric castle, with all it's oddities that have been collected over the years. We love all Northumberland castles with their history's fine rooms, gardens or ruins Chillingham is just as fantastic but in an entirely...

A day trip to castle, open at 12 o'clock. We went to tearoom first for lunch. It is tearoom that only belongs to castle. Wonderful! Could not stop to take Picts. I love everything keep the way as it is, very different from normal museum. And it is spooky as well. The letters from visitors who took items from castle...

Visited with my husband on a wet June afternoon, so didn't get to see gardens. The castle however is memorable.Some of the rooms are just full of 'stuff'- costumes ,cast off furniture, photos, anything in fact used by previous occupants over the years. The owner has tried to label things himself but it is a bit off a jumble. Worth...
