Visit Castle Hill and Victoria Tower Website


The history of human activity on the Castle Hill goes back over 4000 years. The site was developed as an iron age hill fort, surrounded by defensive ditches and ramparts. In the Middle Ages there was a castle on the hill, of which the well remains. The present tower was built to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee of 1897.

A special event will take place on 2nd June for the Platinum Jubilee – click here for details.
