We don’t do half measures at Bamburgh Castle when it comes to a great family day out

Half term fun at Bamburgh Castle

It’s got everything the perfect castle should have for exploring: turrets, ramparts, cannons and battlements not to mention amazing sea views. So do something memorable and visit Bamburgh Castle for a February half term fun fix.

A perfect castle aside, pick up one of our new Children’s Activity Packs crammed with fun challenges and puzzles to crack around the castle. Find out about Futhorc Fun with hidden Anglo Saxon messages, take the Stone Mason’s Challenge and create your very own Mason’s Mark and follow the clues to our resident Bamburgh Castle Dragon Spike’s Trail.

With nine acres of grounds to run, roll and tumble around with our ancient outdoor games that are great fun in the 21st century too, you can be King or Queen of the castle with medieval dressing up or take aim from our incredible sea-facing cannons – they’re perfect for snapping fantastic family photos too! But beware any naughty visiting children – Bamburgh Castle has its very own stocks that mums and dads might put you into!

Bamburgh Castle is dog friendly, so bring the family dog in tow, too.
