A brick castle ruin


Halton Castle is located in one of Liverpool City Region's neighbouring counties of Cheshire. It's a short journey over the Runcorn Bridge via car or London Midland train.

It's one of the two surviving Norman castles in Chesire and stands on a rocky hill overlooking the Mersey River above the former village of Halton. This location is a clear choice for it's elevation and potential as an observation post.

At Halton Castle, there are a number of fascinating features such as the sally port, garderobe and tower. The castle itself is opened for special events and tours several times a year, however it is accessible to walk around the castle walls at any time of the year.

Norton Priory is pleased to be managing the historic site of Halton Castle. Please visit the Norton Priory website for events including Heritage Open Days in September.
