Dating back to the eleventh century, the castle has been a stronghold during battle with the Scots, it has been a prison with some controversial and high-profile inmates and it was a site of much fighting during the English Civil War. The castle is open to tours at the weekend where you get a taste of the ancient right through to its latest service as a prison.
