A well worth while visit into the past. An amazing building which is cared for both inside & out. Norman, Saxon & Tudors have had an influence.

Went to Tamworth castle to kill some time. Our children enjoyed the fact that you could dress up. The castle is in good nick even though it’s from many different periods of time. Overall a good experience.
