  • Durham Castle
Durham Castle is open to the general public to visit, but only through  guided tours, since it is a working castle and the home to over 100  students.  The castle has had an extremely interesting history, particularly in  relation to the range of functions which the buildings have performed as  a fortress, the principal palace of the Bishops of Durham and, since  1837, as the home of University College, the foundation college of  Durham University. The castle now also houses an accredited museum,  unusual in that it is contained within a living and working college  community.
The Castle continues to require major restoration and in the last few  years the roofs have ...

  • Aydon Castle is Tucked away just one mile from the village of Corbridge and is a perfect location for a family day out.  Almost completely intact, it is one of the finest and most unaltered  examples of a 13th-century English manor house. Set in a beautiful and  secluded Northumberland woodland, it was originally built as an  undefended residence, but almost immediately fortified on the outbreak  of Anglo-Scottish warfare. Nevertheless it was pillaged and burnt by the  Scots in 1315, seized by English rebels two years later, and again  occupied by Scots in 1346.
Bring along a picnic and spend the day exploring this gem plus why  not visit Hadrian’s Wall too, which is close by.
