Built on a remote headland in Nothumberland by rebellious baron Earl Thomas of Lancaster, Dunstanburgh Castle was a grand symbol of opposition to King Edward II. Today, admire the great twin towered keep and take in the views from the wave-battered coastline. Accessible via an awe inspiring walk along Northumberland's picturesque coast, a visit to Dunstanburgh is also the perfect opportunity to try Craster Kippers - a local delicacy!
