Our second visit to Chillingham Castle and it didn't disappoint. The enthusiasm of the guides are matched by the obvious enthusiasm of the castle's owner whose copious guide is well worth buying. The exhibits are eclectic and really offer an insight into the owner's ancestry...More

If you arrive before 5pm you can access all the grounds and the castle. The Ghost Walk starts at 9.00pm - 11.00pm well worth the money.
