Overview

One of the most magnificent of Britain's castles is the "birth place of the Tudor Dynasty." You can climb the 80ft Great Keep, descend into a pre-historic cave and look down into a prisoner in a medieval dungeon. There is also a cafe and gift shop. During school holidays there are falconry displays, historic re-enactments and family entertainment. The main exhibition rooms display models and weaponry as well as telling the story of the history of the castle. You can also visit the room that King Henry VII the founder of the Tudor Dynasty was born.

Lots of turrets to climb and explore. Great detailed history displays if you want full information and nice mini video sections around the castle to explain sound bites of its history. Fab giant map of Wakes to explore. Nice cafe.

Entry wasn’t cheap, but you definitely get 2-3 hours worth out of the visit. Don’t miss the introduction video, on the way in, (which we did, and ended up doing on way out). We chose not to go on the guided tour (included), as we...More
