Unusual mix of old and not-quite-so-old

We decided to call in here on our way from Hexham to Durham. SatNav took us by what was probably the most direct route – via Ovington – but we baulked when we did a sharp right turn onto Station Road in Ovingham. The road ahead led straight onto what, at first glance, seemed a pedestrian-only bridge over a river. Surely, we thought, a car can’t squeeze through there!? So we did what any sensible driver would do – we reversed, and parked nearby. As it turned out, we discovered that – surprisingly – the bridge over the River Tyne was designed for single file car traffic, but by that time, we’d decided to make our way to the castle on foot. It took perhaps 20 minutes or so, but we were in no hurry. The castle, which had withstood attacks by William Wallace, was very scenic in external appearance, and the entrance epitomised what a castle entrance should be. Internally, however, we were a little disappointed, in part because the castle had been updated to serve a new purpose as a Georgian mansion. That was interesting enough, but I tend to prefer the full-blown original. In summary, then – interesting but not worth going too far out of your way for. But do try to avoid the bridge at Ovingham, particularly if you have an obese car …

Well worth a look at

Visited today and it is well worth a visit Very old castle with lots of history. Staff on site were excellent and very friendly and knowledgable. Would recommend a visit to it.

Traditional looking Castle from the outside

Phil C, Ellesmere Port, United Kingdom
Traditional Looking Castle , huge history well documented in Displays and information boards .... good place for the kids to play or ideal for a family picnic , well stocked shop , however no cafe on site , carparking is free but it is a small carpark. English Heritage site so as normal members get in for free

Pleasurable visit

We were able to take our dogs around, and the castle itself was impressive. We thoroughly enjoyed walking around the interior and exterior.
