An exclusive retreat for around nine centuries, Auckland Castle is one of northern England's finest Norman landmarks. The castle is in the charming medieval market town of Bishop Auckland, and is just a short drive from several stylish hotels in Bishop Auckland and the rest of County Durham.
From the 11th Century onwards, the castle became a powerful seat for the Prince Bishops of Durham, who once ruled this area of England and lived at the site until 2010. See its splendid 16th-century Long Dining Room, admire the portraits of the Throne Room and the Zurbarán Paintings gallery, then see the enchanting 18th-century Deer House and the picturesque Deer Park.
The castle also has an elegant Library Tea Room serving refreshing hot drinks and delicious lunches, and organises concerts, exhibitions, food festivals and other special events throughout the year. For more information on other special events taking place in the Bishops Auckland area, contact your hotel reception or feel free to pick up a few tourism leaflets from your hotel lobby.
Learn about this region's fascinating ancient past by visiting the Binchester Roman Fort, otherwise known as Vinovia, which is estimated to be more than 1,900 years old. The site was an important settlement for approximately five centuries, and was not discovered until the late-19th century.
This town is also overlooked by St. Andrew's Church, an impressive Grade I-Listed building that has stood for more than 600 years. Another sight that is definitely worth seeing is the Newton Cap Viaduct, a magnificent Victorian structure that is 32 metres high and offers wonderful views of the countryside.
All hotels in the Bishop Auckland area offer comfortable accommodation with quality single or double bedding, and many also provide delicious English or continental breakfasts free of charge or for a daily supplement. One of the most luxurious hotels is the Redworth Hall Hotel, a stunning four-star retreat that is only six miles from Auckland Castle and has immaculate WiFi-enabled rooms and a full-service spa.
