CASTLE ESPLANADE

The Large flat area in front of the castle's Gate House was built in 1753 as a parade ground for resident troops.

It reached it's present day appearance by 1820 and is used every year as an outdoor stage for The Military Tatoo. It also plays hosts to live concerts with the lit up castle as an impessive backdrop.

May famous artists who have palyed the Castle include; TEXAS, MOBY, ELTON JOHN, TOM JONES & BLONDIE.

The Castle ticket office can be found here and monuments situated on the north of the esplanade include the grave of Esign Ewart and statues of Ferdinand Duke of York and Earl Haig.

The Witches well is situated on the east wall and commemorates the large number of women who were burned as witches on this spot in the 16th century.
