A breathtaking beach, drifting sand dunes, & a majestic castle view everywhere you turn. These are just a few of Bamburgh’s draws. Bamburgh Castle is the king of Castles. Believed to have been occupied for over 10,000 years the castle has evolved from a wooden palisade to the formidable fortress it is today. The first castle in England to fall to canon fire as the Wars of Roses drew to a close.
It was also one of the world's first 'coastguard' stations and the site for the development and testing of the World's first 'lifeboat'. Under the ownership of the Crewe Trustees it housed a school, hospital and was the centre of its own mini 'welfare state'. Bought by the First Lord Armstrong in 1894 it is still owned by the Armstrong family who play an active part in its operation and maintenance.
