The site is small and well enclosed, thus allowing your students to explore the design of a castle in a safe environment. The central tower has a viewing platform halfway up and you can also reach the level of the uppermost floor, where the viewing area offers stunning views across Wensleydale. Don’t miss the exciting features of the castle. The design of the gate shows how well defended the castle was, and the highest floor of the central keep shows traces of large windows, which offered stunning views to the occupants. Even the replica Middleham Jewel in the display area – just imagine being the one to find it!
Don’t forget, if you are looking for help with funding the cost of your trip, you can apply for a bursary!
