The Secret Lives of Stars
Tuesday 16th November 2021
Wherever we are in the world, when we gaze up at our night sky we can see that the universe is filled with tiny little lights of varying brightness from horizon to horizon.
But what are these things we call stars and what is their purpose?
Taking you on a journey around our unique observatory, you will discover ways in which we view our universe, uncover the mysteries of light and how it has helped shape our understanding of the universe.
On clear nights there will be a focus on using our high-powered, large aperture robotic telescopes housed inside their turrets as well as smaller manual telescopes under a blanket of stars on the observation deck. A team of expert astronomers will be on hand to navigate you around the night sky to objects of interest such as the Moon, Double Stars, Clusters, Planets, Galaxies and Nebulae depending on the lunar calendar.
On nights when observation isn't possible, you will look at the ways ancient astronomers navigated and developed meaning behind what they saw in the heavens. You will be taken on a virtual tour of our skies, learning constellations and what they mean to us as observers. You will also be able to see and touch fragments of rock fallen to earth, frozen in time from the very origins of our solar system.
The package includes:
You may also wish to upgrade to a Deluxe Room within the main Castle for an additional £50.00 per night or a Feature Room for an additional £75.00 per night.
If you wish to arrive a day early, or extend your stay for another night, then we are pleased to offer a special rate of only £129.00 in a Castle View Room (B&B).
NOTE: CastleView is a conversion and recent extension of a listed building within the grounds commanding magnificent views up to the main Castle which is situated only 80 metres away.

Some kind words
"Wow - Amazing - Magical even!"
We booked this hotel as really a last minute thing, we just needed to relax after a stressful few weeks. Well, The Langley Castle Hotel certainly fulfilled our criteria!!
On arrival we were warmly greeted by the hotel reception staff and showed to our suite. We had booked the Castle View Suite. These suites are located outside of the castle, but your view is a stunning one. We had some wonderful peacocks sitting outside our patio doors. The suite we stayed in was just so quaint, steeped in history yet modern facilities. The bed was very large, very comfortable and the room was very clean. We loved it. We decided to go into the main castle, to explore and had drinks in the drawing room. Service was so good, the waiters were so attentive. I honestly can't find any fault with this hotel and would definitely recommend it to anyone. The whole experience i found was quite magical, we will definitely be rebooking, i can't wait to go back but maybe a stay in the actual castle next time

“The Castle of Delights”
"So you see the castle as you drive up to the door. Looks amazing..But as in all oustanding hotels it is the detail and even more detail that makes a stay so special. And my stay was so so special. Great room.large. comfy bed. and so clean I felt I needed a shower to use it! The rooms in the castle where styled exactly right. Enough castle and plenty of comfort if you understand me. The Sunday Lunch provided the best Roast Beef I have ever eaten and Dinner in the evening taken in the new glass cube of a room..instead of the stylish grand castle dining room.. was excellent, Honest outstanding balances of flavour and texture and well craftmanship.
The final cream on this lovely place where the Staff. Stunning, Smart, Friendly and always smiling and helpful. If you do nothing else, visit Langley. You will irritate yourself by thinking where you have been that is better.. and I cannot think of anything. So I will be going back."

“2 nights in a Tower room”
"This place magical! We stayed 2 nights in the tower room, which as the name suggests, is right at the top of one of the towers! 104 steps up in fact. Not for the unfit but well worth it. The staff were great, and the food was Devine. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for accommodation in the area, and would love to stay here again."

"Such a wonderful place, excellent room, service and overall a lovely experience, we didn’t stay in the castle but thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the food was fabulous ! Will defiantly return to this stunning venue".

" Birthday Treat"
"Spent an evening there with my my husband for my birthday. It was one of the castle view rooms. Fabulous room with very comfortable bed and powerful shower. One of the best things about the stay was the staff. Sophie on reception was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. Reece, one of the waiting staff was brilliant. He really looked after us. Again nothing was too much trouble. We had an evening meal there and it was delicious. Everything was perfect. Breakfast the following day was lovely too. We also had afternoon tea and it was a real treat. Our whole stay there was excellent, we highly recommend and we’ll definitely be back."

"Have stayed twice now at Langley Castle, very nice"
"We have just stayed, again, in the Radcliffe room at Langley, for a night, during Easter break (we stayed here last year). The area seems remote, ( convenient to those in Newcastle, I'm guessing) but the location is perfect to tour the best preserved portions of the Roman Wall. Also, the cathedral in Hexham has a Saxon crypt (as well as the nicest, kindest volunteers!) and an interesting interactive display/museum room for children. I loved having a cocktail and perusing the menus(and ordering- reminded me of Ireland in that respect) in the beautiful drawing room before going down to the Josephine Restaurant on the ground floor.(also where breakfast is served). Our bedroom had a gigantic bathroom with shower stall, large separate built in tub, two sinks, and even a dry sauna room! It is my favorite bedroom for this reason and for the tower window enclave with bench/table....so charming. The food and service were excellent on both of our stays. If you are interested, each morning at ten, a member of staff gives a tour/history of the castle ....with the highlight being the top open roof complete with turrets and breathtaking views. ."

"The title says it all. From the moment I checked in,to the moment I checked out everything was just perfect. If you fancy staying at an establishment that you don’t need to moan about,or have to take the time of thinking,”how do I word a bad review,” well stay at Langley Castle. Enough said I think!....JUST ENJOY!"

"We enjoyed everything about this place. Excellent attentive staff. Beautiful, well appointed and clean Castle View room. Superb food, both at dinner and breakfast, well presented and good quality fare. Congratulations Langley Castle you work hard to get things right and it's working. We will return."
Ron M - Welshpool, UK - November 2018
"Went here for a few days to celebrate my wife's birthday and we were not disappointed. This is a true castle with a fantastic heritage, the tour of the battlements is a must and not only covers the history of the castle but local and national history going back to Roman times. The staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming and the food in the restaurant for breakfast and dinner is excellent. Our room/suite was comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. we would definitely visit again, sooner than later."

"Literally my favourite place"
"My husband and I got married here 13 years ago and I try to get back whenever I can! It is such a beautiful place and you can't help but have happy memories here. We stayed in the Castleview rooms which is in the castle grounds (a minute or so walk). I prefer to stay in the grounds as I love the walk up to the castle, you just don't get the same appreciation when you stay within the castle! The rooms are unashamedly luxurious with an authentic Tudor feel. We ate in the restaurant and the food was (as always!) gorgeous. Breakfast was plentiful and lovely. The walks around the castle are a good way to burn off the extra portions! We had a wonderful stay with our teenage children and can't wait to come back!"
Jodie M - Southport, UK - September 2018
"What a beautiful place. This is a first visit to the UK and thought it would be fun to find a castle to stay in. The castle and grounds are beautiful. The staff were friendly and helpful. We were in the Radcliffe room and were amazed at the size of the room and bathroom which also had a sauna. We had dinner in the restaurant which was amazing, it was one of the best meals of our trip. Service was fantastic and would highly recommend either a stay or dining there."

"A perfect getaway"
"Well what can we say but what a beautiful hotel Langley Castle. After many years of visiting we still are overwhelmed by the warm welcome by all staff. The hotel grounds the history and food outstanding to say the least. A special thank you to Bob and Jess who are not only professional but make every visit a joy. If you are looking for that something special Langley Castle is a hidden gem in the heart of Northumberland and not one to be missed."
