Location description

Visitors to the Castle will immediately understand why William the Conqueror ordered a Castle to be built here.

With its magnificent views across the Welland Valley this stronghold was crucial in helping William subdue his new kingdom.

As well as a fortress the Castle was an important seat of government, the Great Council of Rockingham being held here in 1095.

Rockingham Castle is ideally positioned in the centre of the country with good road, rail and air links.

By Road: Poised on the side of the Welland Valley, the Castle is off the A6003, 1 mile north of Corby; 24 miles from Peterborough, Northampton and Leicester; half an hour from the A1 and the M1 and 10 minutes from the A14 at Kettering.
