We arrived at Chillingham castle with high hopes, however we were soon let down, the state rooms were over cluttered with random junk which has no link to the castle at all and the attitude of some staff wasn’t great either.
Sir Wakefield’s attitude also left us appalled when he said if we wanted a guide, to tell staff that we can’t afford it so they would give us one, repeating this rude and obnoxious remark more than once, left us all in shock on how rude he was to us!
Claimed to be one of the most haunted castles in England, the only thing leaving us haunted was the bad job of the bubble wrap and tape ghost hanging up in one of the state rooms and the kitchen paper pumpkins although 10/10 for trying.
However my friend and I both noted that the gothic exterior of the castle was impressive, and there were some great photography opportunities. As well as this we felt that after looking into the castles history online, thought that the castle would benefit more from having this information inside rather than some random junk.
Overall, we will not be returning to Chillingham and you’ll find more information online than in the castle itself, so I would waste the money to visit
