A leading role in history

Situated on a bend in the River Avon, the castle was originally designed to keep the Midlands from rising up against the recent Norman invaders. Since that time it has played a leading role in many chapters of British history and has been the home of hundreds of important figures, pretenders to the throne and the occasional villain. Drama simply seeps from its stony walls.

For history lovers, it’s too good an attraction to miss.
