Prudhoe Castle has many a story to tell so a family day out to this Northumberland fortress is truly worthwhile.
Continuously occupied for over nine centuries it was originally the home of the Umfravilles but was eventually taken over by the famous Percy family who restored it. Surviving two sieges during the 1170s , Prudhoe was the only Northumberland castle to resist the Scots. Visit the family-friendly exhibition to find out all about these developments and more about this long-lived fortress.
Have a picnic and take in the surroundings, browse in the shop or explore the keep, great hall and towered walls enclosing a fine Georgian mansion.
