A spectacular Medieval Castle once stood on this very spot and many of its features still stand.

We will bring these impressive original features back to life with strategically placed graphic panels and bespoke viewing frames. Historically accurate artist’s impressions will illustrate the splendour of Castle Rock at its height of power.


Explore the fascinating caves within the Castle Rock and descend through tunnels to Brewhouse Yard. Costumed guides will bring this complex underworld to life, telling tales from centuries past.

Brewhouse Yard Cottages

This charming row of 17th century cottages will welcome visitors arriving at the foot of Castle Rock. The current ground floor displays will be refreshed and improved, bringing to life the history of the people who lived in the shadow of the castle over its 1,000 year history.

Nestled against the Castle Rock, these cottages don’t have back gardens; they have caves! Visitors will be able to explore these sandstone tunnels and the domestic backdrop to such an unusual landscape.
