  • Due to the antiquity of the site, and the fact that it was unused essentially since the late-Tudor times there is understandably little of the castle left at Pevensey. There are the outer walls (free to enter) and the ruins of the Keep (maintained by English Heritage and entry fee charged). Despite this, it is an incredibly atmospheric site - all the more so when you know even a little of the remarkable and pivotal role that events here had on English history. Definitely worth visiting, and an easy way to happily spend a summer afternoon.
  • Really enjoyed visiting this ruined castle. Quite a few things to see. Nice car park (only £2 for the day) probably better value of you are already a member but well worth a visit .
  • Really good audio tour! Well looked after castle.
  • Okay so it's historic rather than organised so you get out what you put in
  • Definitely worth the detour: beautiful walk in a place rich in history.
