Chillingham is famous for its castle, which is said to be haunted, and the Chillingham Cattle, a wild herd of roughly 50 individuals that are kept in an enclosure since the Middle Ages and have been strictly inbreeding for at least 300 years. The village contains Hebborn bastle house, a fortified house near Hepburn Wood.
- The Irish composer Charles Villiers Stanford wrote a song titled Chillingham, serenading the beauty and peace of the landscape.
