So it's half term and what do you do with the kids? Well you take them for two nights of spooky times to Chillingham Castle. We had two nights staying in the Lanseer apartment. Very comfy and warm once you get the log burner going. All the facilities you need and a very interesting guest book outlining all the spooky... More

Went Halloween weekend and had a fantastic time, the guide had an extensive knowledge of the history of the castle and its ghosts. The eeriness of the castle was added to by it being a dark quiet night. Would have enjoyed a longer tour and will definitely be back when possible for an over night stay. A great taster tour...

Most of the rooms that can be visited are very dark, making photography difficult. There is an information leaflet in each room, but they are poorly produced, although they convey the owner's sense of humour. Some of the items in the rooms are really quite strange. There is a torture gallery, which for me, was perhaps the highlight of the... More

Well worth a visit if you are interested in the history of England. P.S. nice little cafe within castle. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. The castle is privately owned and is... More

This castle is over 800 years old packed from floor to ceiling with memorabilia. Very old and original complete with torture chamber and dungeons. This is one hell of a mixture of eccentric items on exhibition. A must to visit complete with a excellent café.
