Hamish visited on a very chilly and showery April day in 2008. The indoor sections of the castle, mostly in the Georgian residential block, were very welcome to keep out of the rain and to warm up. They also housed an interesting exhibition, covering the whole history of the castle and its constant occupation for over 900 years, including a model of the castle during one of its sieges. The custodian was very helpful – and we were able to buy hot drinks from him at the end of our visit. There are substantial ruins of the original castle and earthworks with a good number of information panels. We concluded our visit with a walk around the curtain wall. This gave Hamish opportunity to stretch his legs and we enjoyed the views over the natural bank down to The Tyne and of the old corn mill.
