About Lancaster Castle

Dominating the skyline of the town, Lancaster Castle is of the best-preserved castles in England. This Castle is still used as a Court and Prison but is open to the public too who go there throughout the year to see and explore this wonderful historic building, including its display of heraldic shields, the cells which imprisoned the witches of Pendle, and the crown court from where thousands of prisoners were transported to Australia.http://www.lancastercastle.com/
