Welcome

Alnwick Castle

Welcome to the Northumberland Castles website.

Here you will find information and photographs of all the castles in Northumberland – there are 46 of them !

Northumberland, England’s most northerly county, has more castles than any other English county. Maybe something to do with the history of the “rebellious Scots” on the northern border.  Enjoy the website and if you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to contact me using the Contact page.

Please bear in mind that this site is very much in the construction stage during March and April 2016
