Set in an attractive moors-edge market town, Pickering was first built just after the Norman conquest. Although in ruins today, it is a good example of a motte-and-bailey castle where the original wooden defences were gradually replaced by stone during the 13th and 14th centuries. There is an exhibition in the chapel and sometimes activities for children.
