  • What a place, it had so much atmosphere, you could feel the past battles raging all around. Up high from the tower or low down underneath, the ghosts of the past ware all around.  more »
  • This is a wonderful ruin with many areas to photograph. We had beautiful blue skies with puffy clouds which made the photos really special. There are many different angles from which to shoot the exte...  more »

  • Its free so no attendants, limited parking etc. It's impressive but not extensive. Best to combine your visit with one to the many attractions in the area or enjoy the nice walks along the river or around Norham. Its on the Coast and Castles cycle route and near the 68 route so a nice place to stop for a breather. Village has a good pub, butchers and bakers.
  • Remarkably well preserved and a very interesting history. There are plenty of information boards dotted about to read about the various aspects of the castle. There are a lot of grassed areas so a good place for families to go and, if the weather is right, a beautiful spot for a picnic.
  • The castle is beautiful and well kept so for that alone i give 5 stars but being disabled and finding myself and friends locked in the castle grounds just slightly over 5pm came as a bit of a ahock and put me into a panic attack. We did however eventually find a way out. I would urge the person who holds the keys to the gates to actually check the grounds before closing. Being disabled meant a struggle up the hill to find an exit way out.
  • Great castle to visit, quite a lot of it left including a tower, much of the outer walls and the gateway. Free to get in too.
  • Beautiful ruined castle. Parking OK but no toilets or custodian. Can be accessed by a wheelchair user but will need help in places. Some beautiful spots within outer wall but not in castle to pause and take photographs or sketch. Worth a visit when combined with Etal Castle 😀😀😀
