Bamburgh & Castle

attractions bamburgh village and castle
Bamburgh Village – is a stunningly attractive small Village set on the Northern stretch of the Northumberland Coast. It is without doubt dominated by its magnificently striking Castle that can be seen for miles around, giving the whole Village a somewhat dramatic feeling. You can’t fail to be impressed by the sheer scale of the Castle once you are up close and in the Village itself. There is much to do in the Village alongside the Castle and it’s amazing history, there are impressive stretches of pure golden sandy beaches, many ‘proper’ English tea rooms and restaurants, St Aidan’s Church and a newly renovated museum dedicated to Grace Darling, amongst other things
