Attraction Information

Idyllically set on the banks of the river estuary, this mighty fortress is largely intact, and its endless passages, tunnels and stairways are great fun to explore, plus there are super exhibitions, which tell the tale of its medieval life.

Once the literal seat of a succession of major barons who played leading roles in shaping Britain's history, this historic home is the birthplace of Henry Tudor, father to the infamous Henry VIII and grandfather of Elizabeth I.

Spend a day getting your history and imagination fix in one hit: you can picnic in the beautifully kept grounds or from St. Anne's Bastion, enjoy views along the estuary while partaking of refreshments from the snack bar and visit the Brass Rubbing Centre and quickly and easily, make an attractive souvenir.

Complete your visit with a walk around the medieval town walls and millpond, and stand on the opposing bank to see the castle in all its glory, surrounded by serene waters.

It's always worth checking ahead to see if you can catch a bonus event: they're spread throughout the year and vary dramatically but have included battle re-enactments, falconry displays, dragon days, story-telling and loads of other things worth watching out for!
