A visit to Ashby Castle makes a great family day out in Ashby De La Zouch.
Come and find out about the castle’s colourful history with our lively tours. Hear how Edward IV’s Chamberlain Lord Hastings added the chapel and the impressive Hastings Tower – making a castle within a castle.
Visitors can still climb the tower today despite it suffering damage during the Civil War. There are great views from the top! Then make sure you discover the underground passage from the kitchen to the tower, which can still be explored today.
