Castles & Historic Monuments


Chapel Lane, Beeston, Nr Tarporley, Cheshire, CW6 9TX

Standing majestically on sheer rocky crags which fall sharply away from the castle wall, Beeston has possibly the most stunning views of the surrounding countryside of any castle in England. Its history stretches back over 4,000 years to when it was a Bronze Age hill fort. The huge castle was built from 1226 and soon became a royal stronghold, only falling centuries later during the English Civil War. A new exhibition 'The Castle of the Rock' outlines the history of this strategic site from prehistoric times, through the Middle Ages to the Civil War. It's illustrated with finds from Beeston. Open all year round. Gift Shop. Free Children's Activity Sheet available
