Lancaster Castle to become tourist attraction

The site of Roman forts, a prison, a court, an execution site and the Pendle Witches Trial, Lancaster Castle now has a new role to play: tourist attraction. For the first time in 900 years, the castle will be open to the public.

The oldest part of the castle, the keep, was constructed in the 12th century. Currently, only the courtyard and parts of the prison will be open to the public.
