BAMBURGH CASTLE...

This magnificent castle stands proudly on a rocky outcrop with breathtaking views out across the beaches to The Farne Islands and Lindisfarne in the distance. With a history going back 10,000 years it provides a prestigious venue in which to celebrate a life long commitment. At the centre of the castle stands the Norman Great Tower, now the oldest remaining standing stonework. Surrounding this are remnants of medieval, 18th and 19th Century buildings overlooking impressive ramparts and battlements. Restored in the 19th Century by the First Lord Armstrong, he created a truly iconic castle which has seen visits from royalty both British and foreign.Today, as well as being the Armstrong Family seat, it is visited by thousands who come to see the fabulous views, the stunning Kings Hall and admire a fascinating collection of over 2000 items.
