Bamburgh is a large village and civil parish on the coast of Northumberland. It has a population of 454.
It is notable for the imposing Bamburgh Castle, overlooking the beach, seat of the former Kings of Northumbria, and at present owned by the Armstrong family, and its association with the Victorian heroine, Grace Darling, who is buried there.
Its extensive sandy beach was awarded the Blue Flag rural beach award in 2005. The Bamburgh sandy hills, an area of sand dunes which are a Site of Special Scientific Interest, stand behind the award winning beach.
Bamburgh is within the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
