A stronghold of medieval kings, Knaresborough Castle is beautifully set overlooking the River Nidd.

Explore Knaresborough Castle independently or join a tour to discover the history of the King’s Chamber, visit the dungeon and scurry through the secret underground exit (sallyport).

Get a fascinating insight into medieval castle life and Knaresborough’s royal residents.

Play our computer adventure game to discover life in the fourteenth century or explore how Knaresborough Castle may have looked back then.

Visit the Courtroom Museum to discover an original Tudor courtroom and learn more of Knaresborough’s colourful history.

There are also plenty of hands-on activities in our acclaimed ‘Life in a Castle’ gallery as well as Civil War costumes to try on.

Watch out for special events and activities for families, adults, and children taking place throughout the year.
