The Chillingham cattle are said to be the only survivors of the wild herds which once roamed freely through the forests of Great Britain.

Today they live in a beautiful enclosed 365 acre parkland at Chillingham in Northumberland which has been their home since the 13th century. In  December 2010 the herd numbers 93 animals.

Chillingham offers an outstanding day out in one of the most beautiful parts of Northumbria.  Your first scary experience is a visit to the truly wild cattle.  These unique beasts fight for the chance to mate.  Any weak herd members are gored to death. The guided tours take you close, but not too close, to these extraordinary animals. 

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.

DOG-OWNERS: We are very sorry but we cannot allow dogs inside the cattle park.
