Auckland Castle's entrance building

A castle entrance features in today's Dezeen Weekly newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter includes a caste entrance modelled on a siege engine.

Auckland Tower is a larch building and viewpoint that Niall McLaughlin Architects created for a castle in England.

The entrance combines a tall tower with a ticket hall and is the first port of call for visitors to Auckland Castle and its new Faith Museum in the town of Bishop Auckland.

Readers think it's "excellent and playful".
