  • I wouldn't go as far as calling this a castle, perhaps a keep or a bailey is more appropriate. However, the grounds are lovely for a family day out and we go when there are events on, jousting, catapults, archery, falconry and the like. The "castle" is quite compact, as I mentioned, more a tower but has some historical notes dotted around. The kids have fun running around and the grounds are great for running around in between events.
  • Hedingham castle is a great place to go to while away an afternoon. The castle is more a keep so doesn't take to long to get around, however the landscaped grounds are very pleasant and great for a stroll around with the family.
  • Its a beautiful and functioning castle. It is open to visits but check beforehand as the castle carries out a huge number of weddings and is often closed to public access as a result. Well worth a visit on the days you can get in.
  • Great day out, with organised activities on a class trip. Very lucky to have absolutely fabulous weather - only March, but like a warm summer's day. The keep is spectacular
  • Beautiful grounds. Interesting and educational talks. Good reenactment
