Pickering Castle stands to the north of the town. The keep was built on an artificial motte rather than on a hilltop, with a bailey on both sides. The keep and inner bailey were built from around 1180 to 1230; the outer bailey and towers were added in the 14th century. The castle was used by medieval kings for hunting and as a centre for forest administration. However, it was largely ruined by the 16th century.
