Beeston Castle was built as a fortress in 1228 and became a royal garrison for Henry III and his barons. It was dismantled in 1645 by Order of Parliament and is now a picturesque ruin. Peckforton Castle is a Victorian mansion built in imitation of a medieval castle by the Tollemache family, and is now a well regarded hotel.
