This is a small museum packed with artefacts that belonged to Grace and her family, the boat(coble), clothes, letters and so much more. The church across the road completes her story with references in the church decoration and her shrine/tomb. It really is informative and...More

This a very small museum, but really interesting and well laid out. The view over to the Farne Islands from the upper deck was well planned. Also notable was the link to the work of women in the modern RNLI

Grace Darling's fame lives on 150 years after her heroic deeds with her father William. This is a small but really informative tribute to her and her family. There is just enough to see - including the actual boat used in the rescue - which...More

A very well laid out museum and visitor centre, lots of artefacts, pictures and the boat of course. The views from the 1st floor over to the church atop the cliff and Grace Darlings memorial and family grave are emotive.

We have done this before of course as have had a few holidays in Bamburgh. They had made quite a few alterations to the museum since we last visited so found it a lot more interesting. Well worth a visit if you are in Bamburgh.
