Bamburgh Castle

Bamburgh Castle sits on top of an outcrop of the Whin Sill. It has been a fortified location since the 5th century. The Normans built the first castle here. After the war of the roses the castle fell into disrepair. The building seen today is Victorian, built by the industrialist William Armstrong. The castle is privately owned but open to the public.
