Name: Dunstanburgh
Location: Northumberland 
Country: England 
Review this castle

Dunstanburgh, a vast castle of John of Gaunt, occupies a wonderfully strong natural site on a promontory overlooking the North Sea. Though very ruinous and uninhabited for centuries, it has a great dramatic power. 


Joss, 21, from Southampton, UK, wrote:
 One of the most beautiful ruined castles in Britain! You can reach it by walking along a cliff path through green open fields (in summer anyway, this _is_ Britain after all!)
 Was once (14th century) one of the castles belonging to John of Gaunt, who enlarged it and added one of the towers, which is now names after him.
  Well worth a visit. Beautiful castle, beautiful views, great memories.
