Cute little Bamburgh is dominated by its castle, a massive, imposing structure roosting high up on a basalt crag and a solid contender for England's best. The village itself – a tidy fist of houses around a pleasant green – will be forever associated with the valiant achievements of local lass, Grace Darling.
