As we headed towards Scarborough, England, we stopped at Bamburgh Castle, just south of Berwick-upon-Tweed. It is one of the best castles we have ever visited. Even better, it is apparently haunted!
On the ocean, overlooking the North Sea, Bamburgh Castle has been continually owned by family up until the present generation.
Some shots from inside the Great Hall….
…and other cool stuff.
I collect weaponry myself, so this was especially fun to see displayed.
Didn’t see a single ghost, though. Sigh.
There’s also a stone throne that faces out over the water that is surprisingly comfortable to sit in and survey the domain.
Definitely recommend this castle if you’re looking for out of the way places that reek of ancient times and royal strength through defenses.
