Picturesque castle with a lot of history

BillW611, Ripon, WI
My wife and I visited Prudhoe castle with family members including a grandson and two two granddaughters. Everyone enjoyed the visit. I am a castle and history buff so that I saw the castle as an artifact of the troubled relationship between England and Scotland in the middle ages. The existence of an 18th century home in the midst of the castle was disconcerting, but the house did provide a museum that aided with telling the story of the castle. The walls and the gatehouse are still in good shape. The keep is in ruin, but still impressive. Otherwise, all the buildings in the bailey are gone but foundations survive to show their location. Thus, enough was left for me to to put a visible context to the history. As for the rest of my family, they all had their own sorts of fun, poking around the ruin or dashing around the bailey. Finally, the castle is in a beautifully wooded setting. It was well worth the trip.

Interesting site/history

This castle is in a scenic location and has a very interesting history. The rooms are very basic but the structure has many interesting features to view.

Nice castle & worth a visit

Ok, this is a small castle, but it is in quite good condition considering its history. Our visit lasted about an hour. In which time we explored the many corners of the castle, as well as walked around its outer curtain walls. We found the visitors centre had quite a lot of information available, but the exhibits were quite average & could probably do with refreshing. Overall though we enjoyed the time we had spent at Prudhoe Castle.

fantastic castle, great staff, Mark, very helpful and informative.

We visited as we were staying nearby and it was the nearest English Heritage castle, and had a good hour or so exploring. The manor house part had some of the history of the castle, then led out to the medieval keep, which is very small. Back out into the inner ward, the walls are interesting as they have been falling down the slope into the moat since being built. You can climb up above the gatehouse into the chapel, and also walk around the outside of the catles walls. Worth a visit, but not as good as other castles we visited this holiday. Wait! I forgot. There is a room where youy can assemble wooden blocks into parts of the castle, kept my children entertained for ages!
