AN actor and TV presenter has visited a popular tourist attraction for a new TV programme.
Sir Tony Robinson, star of Blackadder and Time Team paid a visit to Muncaster Castle to film part of the second series of his Channel 4 programme Walking Through History.
In the series, Sir Tony embarks on spectacular walks through some of Britain’s most historic landscapes in search of the richest stories from the country’s past.
He visited Muncaster to film part of a Roman-themed programme, in which he walks from Penrith to Ravenglass, via the Roman Fort at Hardknott and Muncaster Castle.
He also dropped in on Muncaster’s Feast of Fools, the castle’s annual get together for its jesters, and paid a visit to the World Owl Centre.
Peter Frost-Pennington, of Muncaster Castle, said: “It was great to meet Tony Robinson and his wife Louise; they were both very friendly and seemed to enjoy visiting the castle and the World Owl Trust.”
