Bamburgh Castle is another of Northumberland’s impressive castles, notable for its position on a rocky outcrop allowing for some wonderful views of the surrounding coastline. The area has been occupied for over 10,000 years and there’s been a building there since at least 547 with successive owners from the Normans, Anglo-Saxons and Victorians adding to the castle’s structure.
On my first full day in Oslo, after buying my Oslo Pass (which I would highly recommend as it gives you free entry to 30 museums and free travel on public transport for set periods of time, among other things) I headed over to Akershus Fortress.
