Bike Touring Highlight
Beeston Castle is a magnificent 11th-century former stronghold that once belonged to Henry III. Built in the 1220s by Ranulf de Blondeville, the castle was partly destroyed under Cromwell in the mid-16th century.
From the castle, you can see across eight counties; as far as the Welsh mountains in the east and the Pennines to the west.
Today, the castle is open on weekends from 10am - 4pm. Entrance costs £8 for adults.
