  • Castle grounds were immaculate, the castle itself was closed due to building work currently been undertaken. Worth a return trip to fully explore it
  • Beautiful castle and stunning grounds. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Looks great. Waiting till the refurbishment is done.
  • Beautiful grounds to walk dogs and enjoy a whole afternoon. Mr. Ruffer seams to be doing a lot for the town. PITY THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE WITH IS SPOILED WITH THE KNOWLEDGE THAT FOXES ARE TORN TO BITS BY HOUNDS IN THESE GROUNDS. No place in this day and age. Ban South Durham Hunt .
  • I first visited Auckland Castle a month and a half ago and returned again recently, having so enjoyed it. I was especially privileged to experience the overwhelming Janet Cardiff 40 Part Motet installation on both occasions. The building was beautiful and interesting, the exhibitions were superb, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the audio-visuals were outstanding. Highly recommended!
