At one of the sides of the inner Yard is the great hall, we could not enter, as they were preparing the hall for a reception, but here is a photo from outside.
The three towers
This is the north wall and for more strength they had also this towers, as you can see now they are not in the best conditions, maybe the basement is moving.
To protect from the attacks on the top of the Northern Wall they constructed this Wooden frame. Here you can also see how they used to defend.
Medival siege engines
You will find them just at your left at the entrance to the castle, at your right is the ticket office and souvenir shop.
In certain days there are medieval shows.
The leaning tower
I was told that it fall due to a ball cannon during the civil war, but after looking the rest of the towers It could be a movement of earth underneath.
I will check for more info
The second biggest in UK after Windsor, or at least that what we were told, I may be wrong lol
A very impressive medieval castle build in Great Britain.
Castle East Gate
This is the main entrance. Price to enter is 3 pounds per person, if you have in mind visiting a few castle in Wales, there is an interesting ticket for 7 or 3 days pass
Castle south Gate
This is the south gatehouse, at the moment closed, so you have to go around the lake to enter at the East one that is the main entrance to the castle
Climb all the spiral stairways
I think if you made a sport of spiral stairway climbing the folk in UK would be tops because they have got tons of places to practice.
The town is dominated by a spectacular ruined castle. It was built in the 13th century and enlarged the following.
