A visit to Conisbrough Castle
It’s no wonder majestic Conisbrough Castle has become one of the most popular attractions in South Yorkshire. The lofty 12th century keep of this very well-preserved building, now complete with its restored roof and floors, is a spectacular sight. It had a major role to play in the Wars of the Roses and was once owned by Richard of York. Conisbrough Castle featured in Sir Walter Scott’s 'Ivanhoe', and with its many reminders of the golden age of knights in armour it makes a great value family day out near Doncaster. The Conisbrough Castle team are now recruiting volunteers to help with the re-development. Please visit volunteering to find out more and how to apply. We are holding an information day on the 27 September at Conisbrough Library at 10am or 2pm. After applying you will be invited to attend this session.
