The imposing seat of the Kings of Northumbria has to have one of the most magnificent settings of any of England's castles. Occupying a rugged plateau above the Northumberland Coastline, the nine-acre site sits imperiously above a wide expanse of beach. You can visit the castle all year round and explore miles of sand dunes that provide a home to wildlife unique to this habitat.
