Dungeon Tours

Experience our medieval dungeon by joining one of our Dungeon Tours.

Smell the air, and imagine the sounds and echoes of a time gone by, see the Civil War graffiti carved into the dungeon walls by soldiers held prisoner there and discover the other uses it has had over the centuries.

Tours are available Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 1.15pm and last around 40 minutes. Additional tours will be available during school holiday periods and on event days. Tickets available from our new visitor centre shop. Adults £3.00. Child (5-16years) £1.50

If you are making a special trip, please contact us in advance to confirm the tour is running that day.

Useful to know

The tour involves descending underground via steep steps with low light levels and damp conditions. Sensible footwear is advisable.
