Come and visit a 1,000 year old castle that's been shaped by warfare!

With fallen fortress walls and secret places, to discover, there are tales of historic treachery and treason to be discovered around every corner!

This is a particularly active castle, with lots of events throughout the year including Family Fun Days and awesome Battle Re-enactments, plus Open Air Theatre and Cinema! Check the website to see what's coming up!
