Due to a weather warning for this weekend and the amount of ice around the site we have decided to close Pontefract Castle until Sunday, and will reopen on Monday 18 Jan.
Following the recent announcement from the government on COVID-19, all Council museums are closed until further notice.
Pontefract Castle grounds and toilets will remain open to the public during the hours as currently advertised and the café will be serving takeaway food and drink. The Castle play area will remain closed due to waterlogged ground conditions.
Sandal Castle grounds will remain open to the public during the hours as currently advertised. The Castle Café has confirmed it will close during the lockdown period.
