Auckland Castle


Auckland Castle, in Bishop Auckland, originally established as a hunting lodge, was built in 1183 before being demolished and rebuilt hundreds of years later.  When we arrived at the castle there was a wedding taking place so part of the castle was closed off; we did get to look around some of the exhibitions, including future plans for the place.  The rain stopped us from venturing out around the castle very far so I’m hoping to head back in better weather.
