Rockingham Castle online: information and bookings

Set on a hill overlooking five counties, Rockingham Castle was built by William the Conqueror. The Castle was a royal residence for 450 years. In the 16th-century Henry VIII granted it to Edward Watson and for 450 years it has remained a family home. The predominantly Tudor building, within Norman walls, has architecture, furniture and works of art from practically every century.

Twelve acres of formal and wild garden command splendid views.

A stunning ‘Castle under Siege’ audio visual.
