Attraction Information

Beneath the Castle a labyrinth of manmade caves and tunnels continue to tell the turbulent story of this historic site.

Come along for a memorable tour and discover the secret passageways, King David's legendary dungeon, the Duke of Newcastle's Wine Cellar or Mortimer's Hole.

Take a tour to experience the caves for yourself, learning on the way the gruesome tales of Roger Mortimer and King David of Scotland…

With some of the caves dating back to medieval times, the tour is strenuous with over 300 steep steps. However, for those who wish to descend through hundreds of years the tour is a must!
