Here are just a few of the amazing things you can do in Bamburgh.
Visit the castle
One thing that Northumberland as a county is not lacking in is a vast and fascinating history and one of the many castles that has seen its fair share of bloody battles and extravagant design is Bamburgh Castle which sits on a throne of a hill overlooking the divine coastline.
A visit to the castle gives you the opportunity to delve inside the phenomenal structure that has withstood the test of time brilliantly. You will be sure to fall in love with this awe-inspiring monument which is a colossal figure in this small town of Northumberland.
Venture inside and see how the kings and queens of the past would have lived and learn all about the rich history on a tour around the huge castle. If the walls could talk the tales would be endless in a place that has seen so much.
Once you’ve seen all the amazing rooms inside you can enjoy a picnic on the vast land that surrounds the castle and enjoy the view from the outside.
Let’s go to the beach
Bamburgh is situated on the beautiful coastline of Northumberland and this beach in particular is very special. The sands are delightful and the kids will adore the sand dunes that they can roll down and run up for hours of fun. If they weather permits it, be sure to take a towel as there is nothing more refreshing than the Northern Sea and don’t forget that this long stretch of beach is dog friendly!
For any golf lovers out there you won’t find many courses with views as good as those at Bamburgh golf course. You play on a course close to the beach which offers spectacular views of the coastline as well as the castle that dominated the skyline.
The course itself offers a nice challenge and the tranquillity of the scenery gives you the perfect experience for a round of golf.
