Bamburgh Castle

  • Description

    Built on a basalt outcrop on the Northumbrian coast facing the Farne Islands, Bamburgh was the royal seat of the kings of Northumbria, and the Normans built a castle here in the 11th-century. As an important English outpost, the castle was the target of occasional raids from Scotland. In 1464 during the Wars of the Roses, it became the first castle in England to be defeated by artillery.
