Explore what it was to live and work in Durham Castle in the past and find out more about some of the characters that have made Durham Castle their home over the centuries.
Why not take a tour around one Durham's most significant historic buildings with your family. Built on the orders of William the Conqueror in the 1070s, Durham Castle began life as a motte-and-bailey castle. It soon became a palace to showcase the wealth of the Prince-Bishops whose semi-regal powers made them one of the most powerful political and military men in the country.
