Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

On several visits to England we have gone to Auckland Castle and found it closed. This year the gate was closed and we saw a gentleman wearing a clerical collar who explained that the chapel was being used for the ordination of new clergy. As we pondered on what to do next we were joined may a growing number of ordinands, though still locked out. One of the new clergy found a way of opening the gate and we all went inside. I went straight to the chapel which wouldn't be accessible later and found a magnificent building, not huge but ornate and worth a visit.

My wife found somewhere to pay and after that unorthodox start we toured the building which had many fine rooms and helpful staff to explain what went on in that room. From many of the upstairs windows there were views over the grounds and gardens, which were accessible to younger and fitter visitors able to manage quite long walks into the distance.

One room had a video presentation with a personal presentation by Dr Butler (Bishop of Durham) and the whole visit was a most interesting experience.

We tried the restaurant but for a gluten free person there was nothing suitable. The staff were courteous and explained that they didn't cater for diets because they didn't get enough people with allergies to make it worthwhile. Comment on that policy is probably unnecessary but since eating in the Palace wasn't the main purpose of the visit it didn't spoil the day. Bishop Auckland is an interesting town and the Castle is one of its most interesting buildings.

Paid for a £30 2 day All Access Pass, which includes entry to Auckland Castle, The Walled Garden, Castle Grounds, The Spanish Gallery and the Mining Gallery! This represented outstanding value for money as the entire experience was simply awe-inspiring. The wonderful staff throughout the visit oozed pride and professionalism in their roles. They are clearly immensely proud of having such awesome world-class attractions in their town. From start to finish, everyone was helpful, cheerful and knowledgeable - a credit to Jonathan Ruffer, the inspiration behind The Auckland Project. To anyone considering visiting, or anyone doubtful of what awaits: GO! You will NOT be disappointed!

Had a wonderful day visiting Auckland Castle today with three children aged from 9 to 14. The Auckland Project is a wonderful example of regeneration. We visited the wonderful Auckland tower first for a panoramic view of the town of Bishop Auckland and the surrounding area. This is the place to buy tickets and find out what is on offer. We chose to buy a family ticket for the castle, deer park and gardens which was great value at £35. The deer park is extensive and a beautiful place to walk and picnic. The walled garden is inspiring and well kept with it's wide selection of flowers , fruit and vegetables. On entering the castle, we were given a warm welcome and offered a family trail which was very good quality and much more engaging and interesting than the usual trails/quizzes in stately homes. Every room at the castle was well presented with lots for the children to touch , read and be inspired by. In several cases, the story of a given Bishop in a room was linked to other aspects of social history eg. the miners strike in the 1890s in which the Bishop of Durham mediated. It was lovely that the final room had video messages from the current Bishop of Durham too and we were fully immersed in the historic and religious significance of the building with lots of up to date video, audio and projections enhancing the visit. The shop and cafe were lovely and all the staff were friendly, informative and very warm towards the children. I would definitely recommend visiting.
There are two art galleries in the town which are also part of the Auckland Project and an amazing newly built stone structure which will be opening as a 'Faith Museum' next year.
So great to see new things happening in this town!

We visited mainly to see the Zubaran paintings and were incredibly impressed. The palace and its contents were so well presented. There was a nice little cafe in a beautiful courtyard and the grounds (currently mid way through restoration) will be wonderful. We didn’t have time to see the Spanish art gallery or the mining museum so will have to come back. But most of all wanted to give a shout out to the staff who were without exception fantastic. 10/10.

I travelled a great distance to spend a day in Bishop Auckland to experience the Auckland project. The setting is rather imposing.
Entering the Castle/Bishop's Palace was rather difficult and confusing.
The ticket office was closed and we were sent back into the centre of town to Auckland tower to purchase entrance tickets.
Once entering the castle I had to fight my way through a crowd of chattering clergy floating around in their black cassocks.
The restoration is imposing and the highlight and the main reason for my visit was to see Zurbaran's paintings of Jacob and his twelve sons, the one of Benjamin is a copy ,although the original is on loan to the Spanish Gallery in the town. The guides although friendly were somewhat overwhelming and did not allow for quiet contemplation of the paintings and interiors.

What a beautiful place to visit .. staff were so lovely and attentive shared info with us about the place. Enjoyed an afternoon there and the deer park next door is just as nice for a lovely walk after. The place was not crowded which is always a plus! Felt like we have our own private tour.

Wow! What an incredible place… superbly restored and curated. Brilliantly helpful and knowledgable guides that helped to unlock the secrets of this magnificent building and its past.

Look out for the medieval graffiti and protection marks in the chapel. Worth the visit on their own!

Wished I lived closer as the food in the cafe is fresh, delicious and plentiful. No need to go anywhere else!

Travelled up from London to visit and it was absolutely worth it!

So much love, passion and care has been lavished on this place that it cannot fail to please. The guides are beyond helpful and the tea room staff a pleasure to deal with (not to mention excellent food). If you are in the area take the time to visit, you won’t be disappointed
