Description

The dramatic and beautiful castle of Bamburgh stands proud on part of the volcanic Whin Sill overlooking a long stretch of golden sandy beach.
Once capital of the ancient Kingdom of Northumbria it is recorded as first being built in AD547. The first great stone castle was built by the Normans to replace the timber palisade of the Anglo-Saxon castle. After a long period of decline it was restored in the late 19th century by Lord Armstrong and remains in that family.
