  • Knaresborough Castle is a ruined castle standing on top of a large cliff overlooking the River Nidd in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire.

    First built around 1100 by a Norman baron, the fortress was rebuilt between 1307 and 1312 by Edward I and later completed by Edward II.

    Largely destroyed during the 17th century due to an order from Parliament to dismantle all royalist castles, today the remains of Knaresborough Castle are open to the public. Visitors can see the two walled baileys of the castle, one set behind the other. There is also a museum in the old courthouse which includes furniture from the original Tudor court as well as exhibits about the castle and the town.
