While having finished the Farne Islands tour, myself and mother decided to visit the Bamburgh Castle. It is a huge structure and beautiful from the outside. We did not have the chance to see it from the inside as it was already closed when we...More

Well worth visiting and admission price very reasonable providing good value for money. Walks from the castle especially over the extensive dunes on to a spectacular beech (miles of it) and views across to the Farne Islands. Never mind the weather!
