Beeston Castle

Climb to the top of the formidable Castle of the Rock with incredible views over eight counties, from the Pennines to the Welsh mountains. Excavations indicate that a Bronze Age settlement and Iron Age hill fort occupied the site long before Beeston Castle was begun in 1225. According to legend, Beeston still guards King Richard's lost treasure maybe your family can find it! Meanwhile, an exhibition details the other secrets in the 4,000 years of Beeston Castle's history. There are also acres of unspoilt woodland trails to explore, and plenty of wildlife to see.
