Onwards into the castle itself.
Built on the site of the medieval Great Hall, the Kings Hall is a Victorian masterpiece. The magnificent false hammer beam ceiling is made with teak from Thailand.
They were playing music in the Kings Hall, and we saw the lovely French man and his wife dancing to it
The Cross Hall, which crosses the Kings Hall, has a vast Tudor style fireplace and intricate stone carvings representing ship building across the ages along with large tapestries and a copy of Theodore Rombout’s The Card Players.
The Dining room has a good view
and a castle always should have a suit of armour or two
So that’s the lot for this visit to Bamburgh Castle. Stay tooned for next time when we take a trip to Newcastle.
