Chillingham Castle

At first a 12th century stronghold, Chillingham became a fully fortified Castle in 1344. Steeped in the Nation's history it occupied a strategic position as a fortress during Northumberland's bloody border feuds, often besieged and at many times enjoying the patronage of royal visitors.

At first a 12th century stronghold, Chillingham became a fully fortified Castle in 1344. Steeped in the Nation's history it occupied a strategic position as a fortress during Northumberland's bloody border feuds, often besieged and at many times enjoying the patronage of royal visitors.

In Tudor days there were additions but the underlying Mediaeval character and strength have always been retained. The 18th and 19th centuries saw decorative refinements and extravagances including the gardens and grounds laid out by Sir Jeffrey Wyatville - fresh from his triumphs at Windsor Castle.

Situated in romantic grounds, the Castle commands breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside with local farmsteads and the scenic grandeur of the Cheviots. As you walk to the lake you will see, according to season, drifts of snowdrops, daffodils or bluebells and an astonishing display of rhododendrons. This emphasises the restrained formality of the Elizabethan topiary garden, with its intricately clipped hedges of box and yew. Lawns, the formal gardens and woodland walks are all fully available to the public.

Chillingham Castle offers an idyllic wedding setting whatever the season. Licensed for Civil Ceremonies, we take care of everything and arrange your special day to suit. Receptions are held in the Elizabethan Great Hall, the medieval Minstrels’ Hall or marquee on our South Lawn..

Self-catering apartments within the Castle and Grounds. For wedding information: Tel. 01668 215359 or website: www.chillingham-castle.com
