Attraction in Market Harborough
Built by William the Conqueror, Rockingham was a Royal fortress for 450 years. For the last 450 years it has been home to the Watson family.
Set in a panoramic location, with views over five counties, the Castle has magnificently furnished rooms of several periods, and is surrounded by 12 acres of superbly contrasting gardens. Exhibitions set out the Castle's fascinating history and a new audio visual depicts the 'Castle under Siege'. Excellent lunches, home-made teas and light refreshments are available at the Castle.
Groups and school parties can be accommodated on most days by arrangement.
