About Tutbury Castle
First mentioned on parchment scribbles dating back to 1071, Tutbury Castle still stands, having witnessed an exciting history involving royal captives, decadent feasts, and Civil War sieges. The castle boasts an elegant tea room, expansive grounds, and a time-tested great hall, and is believed to be haunted by the armour-clad keeper and other apparitions. As well as welcoming thousands of visitors each year, the castle is host to a number of excavation projects; with each scrape uncovering more of the site’s colourful and important past.
