The ‘Secret’ Tickhill Castle Announces Its Special Opening Date For This Year

Tickhill Castle is only open once a year, so it is a much-anticipated event each year, with big crowds waiting to view one of Britain’s oldest castles. The historic monument, which dates from the conquest of 1066, is a highly anticipated event that you should not miss the Tickhill Castle open day.

The date has finally been announced for the open day, where visitors can view the site of the old 11th-Century Norman Motte and Bailey in Yorkshire. 

It was completed soon after the Conquest of 1066, and visitors can enjoy the remains and the grounds where history was made, from sieges, and battles over 1000 years ago.

Found on the Queen’s Duchy of Lancaster estate in Tickhill, the event will take place on Sunday, 12th June from 2pm- 4.30pm, and entry is just £4. You can enjoy touring the grounds as well as visiting the 11th-century gatehouse and Motte, which was the highest castle mound in England at one point.

It’s an outstanding day out, and in previous years gentlemen have dressed up in medieval woodsmen and jesters. There have also been an array of refreshments put on.

A spokesman said: “We are delighted to announce that Browns at the Buttercross of Tickhill will be providing a tempting assortment of delicacies for the day.

“Come hungry as there will be a range of foods; both traditional and modern.”
