Saturday 11 June – Monday 29 August 2022

An exciting addition to the Vault is here this summer! On loan from the British Library, don’t miss the opportunity to view this first edition copy of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S.Lewis

A book that has captivated audiences for the last 70 years! The Belfast born writer and Oxford scholar C.S. Lewis first wrote this magical story, the second book in the Chronicles of Narnia series in 1950. Journeying through a wardrobe, four young adventurers find themselves in the magical land of Narnia, where they help a wonderful assortment of creatures living there, including the faun Mr Tumnus and the magical lion Aslan, remove the white witch who had kept the land in winter and return it to Spring.

Access to the Magna Carta Vault is included in the Castle day ticket
