Bracing winter walk at Bamburgh

19th January, 2020

Bamburgh Castle must be one of the most photographed castles in the UK.

However visitors find the beach walk most enjoyable not least because of the looming presence of the castle but also looking out eastwards you can see the Farne islands. In the distance on the horizon the red and white of the Longstone lighthouse catches the eye. This building is near to the site of the famous rescue of survivors of the Forfarshire wreck in 1838 by Grace Darling and her father.

Boat trips from Seahouses a few miles down the coast enable visitors to visit these islands. There are several operators offering trips so be sure you select the right one because destinations vary.

When the tide is out (check the tide tables on the internet) you can walk all the way from Bamburgh down to Seahouses perhaps to enjoy the fish and chips.

Bamburgh Castle is privately owned and is open to the public. There is usually plenty of parking at the foot of the castle - or you can park nearer if you don't fancy the walk.
