  • Unfortunately, we did not have a good experience here. I suggest you go to Alnwick or Bamburgh instead. Very unhelpful and rude staff. No interest in visitors. The grounds are gorgeous and impressive,...  more »

  • The Castle and the historical artefacts were brilliant. I liked the rawness of the interior walls...it created a realistic feel to the castle reinforcing the history of the castle. Enjoyed being able to touch some items. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Cafe is very inviting with a large open fire on what was a rather chilling day. Well done Sir Humphrey for all your hard work.
  • This castle is a must see. It holds so much history and is a fantastic day out. If you're feeling brave, you can also do a ghost your or an all night vigil. They're both worth doing too, the castle and it's atmosphere at night is amazing!
  • The wife and I have just spent the night in the Guard room. Both had a good experience and not scary at all in this room. Fully equipped kitchen. Log burner, fridge but no freezer . Mattress was disappointing but bedding was nice and clean. We went on the ghost walk in and around the castle at night. Well worth the £20 pp . It lasts about2 hours and i recommend you go to get the full Chillingham experience!!
  • A good day out. Beautiful setting. Most of the displays are in keeping and the guides are informative and friendly. The gardens are stunning and worth the trip alone.
  • Had the pleasure to stay in the Dairy Suite for several nights. Such a treat to stay in a "living museum." Sir Humphrey was beyond accommodating to my family. Comfortable well appointed 2 floor 2 bedroom apartment within a wing of the castle. Nice tea room, friendly staff & took a night time ghost tour. EXCELLENT! Looking forward to a return visit.
