Accredited by the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom, Ford Castle is a real medieval castle in Northumberland, right on the Scottish border and steeped in history.
Dating back to the 13th century, Ford has seen battles, love affairs and has even housed royalty. Now, as part of the Château Beaumont Group, we are a unique learning facility with huge private grounds, friendly staff and exciting activities on-site.
You can journey back in time and immerse yourself in castle life, or take advantage of our proximity to cities and local places of interest - Ford is a great base for excursions and field studies. Dedicate your mornings to bespoke studies of modules in History, Geography, or Science, then spend the afternoon swooping through the skies on our zip wire, high ropes and range of adrenalin pumping action-adventure sessions.
Ford is a fascinating building with many a secret to uncover; our visitors are invited to explore and bring the castle to life. We have packages dedicated to learning about the castle, its surroundings, or places nearby, but our knowledgeable staff will be happy to design an itinerary to cover everything you want to do. Our passion and local understanding helps us to include things you might not expect!
