Hartlebury Castle - Home of Worcestershire County Museum

Hartlebury Castle

A print of how the castle appeared in the 18th century. The land at Hartlebury has been a possession of the bishops of Worcester since 854 AD.  It is known that bishops have resided here since the 1200s. The last bishop lived in the south wing (to the left) until 2007, and the County Museum is in the north wing (to the right). The middle range is taken up by the State Rooms – the Great Hall, Saloon and the Hurd Library.
