Learn how the 'Kingmaker' was the only man who dared defy the King, and how he defeated the armies of King Edward IV in battle before taking the King himself as a prisoner. Explore the lavishly decorated State Rooms and 17th-century Great Hall; a room boasting an impressive collection of artefacts including suits of armour and medieval weapons.

In the castle's 14th-century gaol, the original dungeon, see graffiti left behind by prisoners hundreds of years ago. How many names can you spot?

Great tour! Saul was phenomenal, providing stories, historical content, and shared his knowledge about each location and the places in between. John was an amazing bus driver, kept us safe, and we appreciated his excellent driving skills. We had to really search for a tour that only went three places. Never take a tour with four stops. That is too many, and doesn't allow for a real experience. Even three is pushing it. If you have an opportunity to get a tour with Saul and John, take it! You will be guaranteed a wonderful time. We went at the end of September 2022.
