This castle inspired the story about the knight Ivanhoe. It's easy to see why with the 12th Century castle looking just like you would imagine a medieval castle with knights jousting in more peaceful times. There has been a fortress here for a long time, with the first fortification being built by the Normans in 1066. The stone castle that is there today was built as far back as 1159 to 1202 by the half-brother of Henry II.
