Currently one of the UK’s most visited historic buildings… just for a quick chronological briefing, the castle has been a Norman stronghold; the private property of six of England’s medieval queens; used by Henry VIII and his first wife Catherine of Aragon; a Georgian mansion as well as a 20th century retreat for those with influence and fame.
