An 11th century castle built on the site of Roman and Saxon forts. It was enlarged in the early 13th century and although being partially demolished in the Civil War it has been used as the Crown Court since 1800. Visitors can see the magnificent Shire Hall, Hadrian's Tower, the Dungeons, Crown Court, Drop Room and Grand Jury Room.

The Castle is open from mid-March to mid-December each year, with guided tours every 30 minutes from 10.30 am to 4.00 pm inclusive.
