You’ll step back in time the moment you walk through the doors at Lumley Castle which was constructed in the 1388 and takes its name from the man who was behind its creation, Sir Ralph Lumley. In the past it has played host to Kings and Princes – and you can live like the Lords and Ladies of a bygone age with the regular Elizabethan Banquets.
