Join Pontefract Castle for a special Heritage Open Day tour under the keep of the castle! Not usually open to the public, the keep gate is often connected with stories about secret tunnels leading to the castle.
Find out where the gate really leads to, learn about the construction of the castle’s keep and adventure to a place very few people have seen before.
Please note: The tour under the keep of Pontefract Castle involves being in a very tight space, low light levels, low ceilings, and going up / down steep stairs. Sensible footwear is strongly recommended. Please bring a torch.
