STEEPED IN OVER A THOUSAND YEARS OF HISTORY

Auckland Castle is one of the UK’s most important historical buildings. Since the days of the Norman Conquest in the 11th Century, Auckland Castle has been a seat of power. For almost 900 years, it has been the palace of the Prince Bishops of Durham and although the site where Auckland Castle now stands has seen numerous changes, few will have been as far reaching and visionary as those which are set to take place in the 21st Century.

*Please note, Auckland Castle will be closed from the 31st of October and will re-open every Friday, Saturday & Sunday from the 21st of November to the 21st of December. The library will remain open as usual.

*Auckland Castle will also be closed to the public on Thursday the 23rd of October for our Spanish Symposium
