Unforgettable Chillingham

We were looking forward to welcoming you to the cattle park in Spring 2020 and to introducing you to one of the most unique, and truly wild, herd of cattle in the world. However, the Park is currently closed until further notice due to CoronaVirus restrictions. Please visit our Facebook page to see what is going on in the Park.

Chillingham offers an outstanding day out in one of the most beautiful parts of Northumberland. You will never forget your visit to the wild white cattle. These unique beasts fight for the chance to mate. Bulls can – and do – kill each other. The guided tours take you close, but not too close, to these extraordinary animals. Please note this is a walking tour. The ground can be uneven and muddy in parts. We recommend suitable footwear. Flip-flops and sandals are not advisable.

Then visit “England’s most haunted castle” for lunch or coffee. Brace yourself for a terrifying tour of a real castle; fearsome torture chamber, eerie dungeon and magnificent state rooms. If you’re really brave, join a nerve-jangling night time ghost tour.

There is no direct access from Chillingham Castle to the cattle park.

Important Notes:

  • Dogs, including guide and assistance dogs, are not allowed into the cattle park. This is because the responses of the cattle, to dogs of any size, can be unpredictable.
  • Wheelchairs are not suitable in the cattle park due to the unevenness of the terrain. However, our warden will be happy to show you around in her vehicle, at her discretion and with a minimum of 24 hours notice. Please note this vehicle can only accommodate two visitors.
