The remains of a 14th century manor house.

The castle was abandoned as a dwelling in the mid-17th century and by the 1660s was being quarried for building stone. At the end of the 19th century only the tower was still visible amid grassy mounds. Since 1975 the remains have been in the guardianship and ownership of the state. They were excavated between 1978 and 1982.

Edlingham Castle is situated at the east end of Edlingham Village, six miles south west of Alnwick. The Glen Valley 473 bus service to Banktop stops two miles away.
