The castle's Abbot's Tower is the home of the Fusiliers Museum of Northumberland, founded to celebrate the history of the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers as part of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers.

The Fusiliers have fought in various campaigns since they were raised in 1674, including the American Revolutionary War and both World Wars. Discover a fascinating collection of uniforms, medals, weapons, paintings and memorabilia from various historical campaigns.

Commemorating World War I

Opening in July 2014, a new exhibition tells of the lives of the soldiers who enlisted in the Northumberland Fusiliers, one of the country’s oldest County Regiments.

Fascinating stories of endeavour, bravery, loss and survival will be revealed through the possessions, personal diaries, letters, and awards of the individuals involved, as well as contemporary film and photography. 

Children can also meet Sammy, the dog who went to France with his regiment!
