We are excited to be launching our brand new website and with it a whole new look and identity that befits such a national treasure as Bamburgh Castle.
Creating a wow-factor website and new identity that would inspire and enthralled people was no mean task, with lots of planning, brain storming and creative wizardry pokery along with lots of tea, cakes and even Bamburgh Castle inspired pancakes!
Bamburgh Castle owner William Armstrong said: “It’s been an adventure and a real labour of love for everyone involved. Our whole family as well as the Bamburgh HQ Team were involved along the journey with our design partner Blumilk who we chose to carry out our rebrand and new website.
“My ancestor William George Armstrong bought Bamburgh 125 years ago. Today, we are excited to be taking Bamburgh forward as a new chapter begins and continuing the legacy he created.
As a privately owned and run attraction, we rely on visitors to the castle to help keep the castle standing and to preserve and enhance it so it can be enjoyed by many more generations to come and we continue to employ and inter trade with local people and businesses.
“Our new website is helping us to share our castle and its incredible past in an exciting new way and will, we hope, inspire you to visit and enjoy the absolutely unique experience stepping inside Bamburgh Castle brings.”
Lauren Hindhaugh is client director at Blumilk. She said: “We’ve just celebrated our 20th Birthday at Blumilk and what better way to celebrate than to say we have been working with one of the North East’s most loved and recognisable icons, Bamburgh Castle, to help them on their exciting journey.
“It has been an absolute pleasure right from the very start working with the senior team at the castle, winning the professional yet friendly tendering process for Blumilk to be able to create the new brand identity and website. The senior management team, visitor experience staff, catering staff and everyone in between have made us feel part of the family right from the outset and we have formed a brilliant working relationship, always knowing that a meeting with Bamburgh means leaving with a smile on our face.
“The professionalism, commercial awareness and marketing expertise that the team at Bamburgh have is second to none, making our job of creating a brand and website for us all to be proud of all the more easy and enjoyable! The Armstrong family really have created something special and we know that we have may years ahead of us as a partnership to be reckoned with, creating amazing things together.”
