Set in the attractive Moors-edge market town of Pickering; discover how this splendid 13th century castle was used throughout the centuries. This tourist attraction in the heart of the North York Moors National Park has been a royal hunting lodge, holiday home and a stud farm by a succession of medieval kings.

Why not visit Whitby Abbey or nearby Helmsley Castle after visiting Pickering Castle, a perfect way to spend a family day out in Yorkshire.
