Bamburgh, with it's fine village green, is a small coastal settlement with Bamburgh Castle at it's heart. Once home to the Kings of Northumberland, the castle looking across the dunes and the sea to the Farne Islands is one of the finest examples in Britain. The Norman church, founded in 547, in the village is also well worth a look.

Within the village, you will find a number of pubs and an assortment of shops. Venture out of the village and with it's long beaches, breathtaking countryside and the Farne Islands close by, there is much to see and do whatever your choice of country pursuit.
