Preparing to visit
Please note: the Castle Keep will be closed until at least early 2024. There may be reduced access to some other areas or facilities. Group leaders are advised to check in advance of the visit for current information.
On the day
We have a short history of the Castle available in a number of languages.
Please note: the information in the guides may not be up-to-date due to the Keep redevelopment project. These will be revised when the Keep reopens.
Your ticket allows you to come and go as often as you like – just let front desk staff know when you leave if you’re planning on coming back. There’s space for picnics in Castle Gardens, just below the Castle. We also have café facilities on site if you’d rather buy something while you’re with us.
Our museum shop offers a range of postcards, gifts and souvenirs. Please encourage groups to ask staff questions or to ask for help.
