EVERYONE who visits Skipton Castle on Good Friday, April 15, will be helping to raise funds for terminally and seriously ill children and adults.

For the 34th year, the castle will be handing over all admission charges taken on one of its busiest days of the year to Martin House Children's Hospice at Boston Spa, and to St Gemma's Hospice in Leeds.

More than 900 years old, the castle is one of the most complete and best preserved medieval castles in England and is well worth a visit at any season of the year.

Visitors can explore every corner of the castle, which withstood a three-year siege during the Civil War and is today often used for filming. People can view the banqueting hall, the kitchen, the bedchamber and even the privy. They can climb from the depths of the dungeon to the top storey of the watch tower, overlooking the ancient castle woods.
