Visit Britain’s Most Haunted historic castle


Due to no power at the castle and no access because of fallen trees we have had to cancel tonight’s ghost tour.  We are sorry for the inconvenience this causes.


Chillingham Castle is a 13th century, Grade 1 Star-listed stronghold in Northumberland, famed for action and battles.  With its fine rooms, gardens, lakes, fountains and tea rooms, the castle has an extraordinary ownership bloodline which runs back to the 1200s.

Just twenty minutes from the seaside, this romantic and thriving castle is perfect for short breaks or family days out! Or if you’re looking for a more chilling experience, as one of the most haunted castles in England, our ‘Torture Chamber’ and evening Ghost Tours are sure to entertain.
