Bamburgh Castle

Welcome to Bamburgh Castle, Royal Seat of the
Kings of Northumbria and our family home since 1894.

Each year Bamburgh Castle thrills, enthralls and captivates many thousands of visitors from across the globe with its incredible history, dramatic views and treasure-trove collection of unique pieces which tell the story of Bamburgh’s many reincarnations over the centuries, from Anglo Saxon Royal palace to Victorian inventor and industrialist The First Lord Armstrong’s vision of a perfect castle.

Our vast and imposing walls have witnessed dark tales of rebellion and bloodshed, spellbinding myths, millionaire benefactors and ghosts who love Bamburgh Castle so much, they never want to leave.

We look forward to welcoming you to Bamburgh Castle and showing you why our home really is the finest castle in Britain.
