WHERE HISTORY
MEETS IMAGINATION

WELCOME TO BAMBURGH CASTLE

No visit to Northumberland is complete without setting foot inside one of the British Isles’ best-loved fortresses.

Bamburgh Castle is closed temporarily


We have made the very difficult decision to temporarily close Bamburgh Castle to the public until further notice due to the current Coronavirus situation.

The well-being of our staff and visitors is our absolute priority. We fully support and follow the Government’s advice to people with regard to social distancing.

We wish you continued health and wellbeing in these challenging times.

Thank you for your understanding and support.
