    Make sure you climb up to the wall and the watch towers, the view on a clear day is superb. I also got engaged there so, it has a very special meaning for me.

    Built during the late 11th century, the castle is unusual in that it has two mottes. It is only one of two such castles in the country, the other being at Lewes in Sussex.

    Home to one of the original Magna Carta copies. The prison tour is interesting, especially the convict boxes in the chapel.
