A lovely couple of hours spent here looking around the site, very interesting history and the displays were really insightful. The staff on duty Joanna and Adam were extremely helpful and friendly, chatting to them made my day, thank you!
The castle stands close to the town centre. Use either the market square car parks (relatively expensive) or drive to the extensive car parks off the Stokesley road - less expensive and only a 5 minute walk.

We visited the castle rather late in the afternoon on a glorious sunny summer evening. The free audio guide is brilliant -with a choice of additional information should you wish to know more. Walking around the site and learning of the varied periods of its history was most interesting. There is an excellent collection of artefacts found at the site... 更多
