Part 1

I was quite impressed with all the cannons

They should be OK when the next boatloads of Vikings come 🙂

Built on the site of the medieval Great Hall, the King’s Hall is a Victorian masterpiece. Its magnificent false hammer beam ceiling is made with teak from Thailand, then called Siam. The King of Siam, a good friend of Lord Armstrong who visited Bamburgh, is said to have helped carve some of the intricate designs. The King’s Hall was to be the castle’s main social reception and banqueting room. Lord Armstrong built a minstrel’s gallery where the musicians playing at the balls performed.

Beautiful old clocks

and suits of armour

Lots more to see yet so hang on for the next part.

    IT seems quite exotic, cannon for vikings and wood from an oriental King. I always related armors with invaders, and I think they are less heroic to fight with just a sword in hand.
