    We didn't bother to go all the way in as the cost if far too high.

    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.

    Built from 1086 by William the Conqueror, and since 1216 home to one of the copies the Magna Carta (the UK's version of a bill of rights).
