To many people, on their first sight of this glorious medieval castle, it can seem foreboding, and certainly its history lacks nothing in drama and intrigue.
Some of you may recognise us as a film location, for everything from Harry Potter to Elizabeth to Becket to Blackadder.There is much to see and do - history, fine art, fantastic scenery, fun for the children, a wide choice of refreshment options, shopping and exploring. I hope these pages give you a taste of our 'Windsor of the North', and we hope you join us in person soon.
