    On the south bank of the River Tweed amongst green meadows, lies Norham Castle. The Grade I listed building was built from 1099 to 1128 under Ranaulf Flambard, Bishop of Durham. Over the centuries, the castle was invaded and changed ownership many times, witnessing many battles.

    The castle is open daily from April to October and entrance is free. You can find out more information, here:

    On the south bank of the River Tweed amidst green meadows stands this old castle ruin. It dates back to 1121. It was built in the border area to protect against attacks by the Scots. The castle was taken several times by the Scots, but partly returned to the English.

    You can find out about the exact history of the castle during a visit. It is open daily from the beginning of April to the end of September from 10am to 5pm.

    Check the opening hours unless you aren't afraid to climb over a gate - in which case; head down the hill towards the village and you can cross the bridge mid-way down.
