HODS Event:

Knaresborough Castle & Museum

Knaresborough Castle & Museum
Castle Yard, Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, HG5 8AS

There has been a castle in Knaresborough for over 900 years. Over the centuries there have been significant periods of building and repair work as the castle was adapted to meet changing military requirements, fashions and historic events.

It may seem peaceful now, but Knaresborough Castle was once a mighty stronghold of medieval kings. Take in the awe-inspiring views and then discover the dungeon, ancient graffiti and the King's Chamber. Inside the museum you'll find tales of local characters including Blind Jack, Guy Fawkes and Mother Shipton. You'll also find the rare, original Tudor court room where suspected criminals faced public trail.
