Chillingham Castle is just 10 minutes from Bluebell Farm bunkhouse. One of the great places to visit in Northumberland
Believed to be one of the most horrific castles in Europe, Chillingham Castle has been the sight of tortures, wars and deaths for over 800 years. With its location near the coast and the English-Scottish border, this medieval castle, played a major part in the bloody war between the English and Scots. Over 7500 people, including women were tortured and killed in the castles dungeon over a three-year period. The torture chamber still has the torture devices intact and in working order. During Easter to October the castle generally opens to visitors at 12 noon (please check before arriving) and tours for groups of 10 or more can be arranged. Find our more here.
