Great place

Well worth a visit, we were lucky, as it was later in the afternoon, we had the place to ourselves. (Along with nesting Kestrals) The buildings are fairly intact, and stripped back to basics. Woud be a great place to hold an event


Michelle B,
Interesting castle lots of walks around the estate also a very significant bridge. The property also allows dogs which to us is important. Parking close to the entrance

Really lovely place to visit this is coming from someone that is not all that keen on visiting places like this, but I was very pleased and the lady in the gift shop was very helpful, plenty of information around to read so you can see how it all was, really easy to find and free parking, do visit

Grass cutters polluted the air

Tallis, Northumberland
We visited here on a beautiful day with bright blue sky and warm sun. For a while it was perfect. The setting is quite hidden and although the village and roads are near, once in the grounds it feels like they are far away. Many parts of the ruined castle were very interesting even for a very young child and there were good interpretation boards. There were lots of grassy areas which were excellent for children too. The MAJOR problem after we'd been there for 10mins. was that three men who were grass cutters, with petrol machinery, began to cut the grass. They were polite and whilst I realise they have a job to do, I was most concerned about the level of petrol fumes from the equipment. We kept right away at a considerable distance, but the smell and taste entirely pervaded the site. I was very worried about the effect of the harmful fumes and especially on the small child I had taken with me. The site is closed to the public on 2 days per week so surely this work could be done then. The journey home took 25 mins and throughout I could taste the fumes, which eventually cleared from my throats and tongue over lunch time. English Heritage need to do a health & safety check on the use of this sort of equipment around the public, not to mention what effects it is having on the health of the workers concerned. Recent reports have highlighted dangers of petrol/diesel fumes.

Well worth a visit

I only found out that Prudhoe Castle existed on the morning of our visit. I've recently become a member of English Heritage and was studying local places to visit. Prudhoe has a lovely Norman castle with access to walk around the castle as well as visit the Victorian manor house. There is a shop with coffees/snacks available which we enjoyed on the picnic tables within the walls. It's very picturesque.
