Bamburgh Castle is located on the coast at Bamburgh in Northumberland, England. It is a Grade I listed building.
Bamburgh became the property of the reigning English monarch at the end of the 11th century. Henry II probably built the keep. As an important English outpost, the castle was the target of occasional raids from Scotland. In 1464 during the Wars of the Roses, it became the first castle in England to be defeated by artillery, at the end of a nine-month siege by Richard Neville, 16th Earl of Warwick.
