Built in the late 13th century and reputed to be haunted by a past resident, this picturesque castle was built for King Edward I and is a perfect example of the "concentric castle" design.

The castle is very impressive and a must if visiting the area. I would like more information to hand telling the story of the castle as I learnt absolutely nothing. National Trust properties have reading material in each room/area and this would have been helpful here too.

Visited this castle on many occasions, and always find it as interesting as ever. Has really good access to all the towers, and is fantastic value for money. The views from the towers are stunning. This is a must for anyone visiting this historical town.
