On the day

Language guides

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. There are picnic tables just outside the Castle’s main entrance. Castle Gardens, just below the castle, offers grassy areas and has lots more picnic benches.


Our museum shop offers a range of postcards, gifts and souvenirs. Please encourage groups to ask staff questions or to ask for help.
