Situated in the heart of England, Tutbury Castle sits on wooded slopes overlooking the winding River Dove, with spectacular views across the plain of the Dove to the beautiful Derbyshire hills. Its commanding view and natural defensive position makes this an obvious site for a castle.
Occupied since the Stone Age, the castle is first recorded in 1071, as one of the new castles built to stamp the authority of the Norman conquerors across the Midlands. Since then, the castle has played an important part in English history on many occasions, in warfare and in peace.

Tutbury Castle is known for its spectacular events. These include major themed events for Bank Holidays. Vikings, Knights in Armour 1940s and Fairytale weekends, and of course our famous Vikings and Fireworks experience in November.
