Superb experience


ric a, South Shields, United Kingdom
Authentic and historical castle. Tremendous location in the heart of Northumberland, with several choices of apartment to accommodate ll requirements. Caution in that some apartments may be located in parts of the castle that requirement a level of mobility to reach them. You must bring your own food and drinks requirements, and cooking facilities in the rooms are provided. The staff are very helpful, and nothing is too much trouble. You will never forget the experience, whether you are lucky enough to see or feel any of the reputed ghosts or not.

An eclectic mix of random and dusty items


Lovajolly, Northampton, United Kingdom
We recently visited on a combined cattle & castle ticket. It was one of the hottest days in Northumberland and we didn't know what to expect. The lady at the reception in the Armoury was lovely and friendly. We bought the leaflet and the guide to the castle, as we like to read about our visits later. That was the first mistake - the guide is quite voluminous which makes it difficult to read as you go around so we did miss some information about some artefacts and features of the building. Also you really do have to try to sort 'the wheat from the chaff' - for within the dust covered 'tat' there are some interesting objects. Clearly, or should that be NOT clearly there is little thought given to 'presentation' ! There are interesting photographs upstairs in the Museum room in frames with cracked glass, and the illumination in at least 2 of the cabinets downstairs does not work. They contain archaeological finds from the estate apparently. This is a direct appeal to the owner or caretakers - please remove the extremely tatty and torn bits of carpet that randomly cover the floor in the museum room - floorboards would be better. We didn't expect National Trust type presentation but where was the Conservation?? Anyway onto more positive comments: our visit to the tea room was lovely. The surroundings were great: the food was lovely and the open fire was very atmospheric. Also we think that many people who visit do not realise quite how much renovation Sir Humphrey has done since acquiring a roofless, floorless ruin. The tour route is only a fraction of the whole castle. Chillingham Castle has seen a great deal of history over the last thousand or so years so its highly likely that there will be ghosts and what you are shown of the castle is a good theatrical set dressing for those who wish to seek them. Overall we both were intrigued with what we saw, and our visit has subsequently prompted many conversations.

Almost entirely bogus


Glenn H,
The building has some interest and contains a small quantity of relevant items. However, very nearly all of the content of furniture and objects has been assembled from the sale rooms of the UK and has no connection whatever with the building. It is part stage dressing, part junk shop and almost entirely bogus. The 'torture chamber' is a particular embarrassment. If you want to see the wild cattle, bear in mind that they now have no connection with the castle and involve a fairly lengthy guided tour. It is difficult to do both in one day if you are travelling any distance The tea room sausage sandwich was disappointing. I cannot make any comment on any accommodation.

chilled out chillingham


John M, Carlisle, United Kingdom
right from the start a different experience, as you walk through the woods to the main entrance( disabled visitors can drive straight to the entrance ) enter through the portcullis into a never before experienced castle visit, everything is open to view and not locked behind glass, really open close up experience of medieval Britain right up to present everyday living in a castle
