Bamburgh Castle is located on the coast at Bamburgh in Northumberland on a rocky outcrop. Its location was previously home to native Britons. It was captured by the Anglo-Saxons then the Vikings and then the Normans who built a new castle on the site that forms the core of the present one. Bamburgh then became the property of the reigning English monarch. The Victorian industrialist William Armstrong eventually bought, restored and opened the castle to the public. It has been used many times as a film location including 'Elizabeth' and 'Macbeth'.
