Although an English Heritage site, Bolsover Castle is partly roofed!
In fact some really interesting interiors including the riding
school, plus far-reaching views from the windows and parapets of the
old castle. The Civil War battle which took place here is
celebrated annually; it is fascinating to be right in the middle of
it particularly when you realise over what an incredibly short
distance they were shooting at each other.
Generally quite a lot of other activity including medieval
re-enactments, period music and children's events which at
least have some vague reference to historic events, even if it is
only sword-fighting with plastic weapons.
