About Brougham Castle
Brougham Castle has been a feature of the landscape since its foundation in the early 13th century. It once formed part of a formidable barrier against Scottish invaders, and its great keep has largely survived amid many later buildings, including the unusual double gatehouse and impressive ‘Tower of League’.
