  • One of the most historic castles in England. The site of William of Normandy's momentous landing in 1066. Originally an important Roman Shore Fort dating back to about AD275. In 1940 it was once again called to help in the defence against the German Wermacht and Hitlers plans to invade Great Britain. The Norman keep was cunningly converted to house heavy machine guns and both the Home Guard and a battalion of French Canadians were stationed within the castle during this critical period.
  • Lovely castle ruins. Very peaceful. Small shop for souvenirs/guidebook. Lots of photo opportunities if you don't want to pay entrance fee.
  • Mostly ruins, but a castle with lots of history. The audio tour is excellent, but you may need to ask for it.
  • Brilliant, pictures do not give the grounds justice again well worth getting the heritage membership.
  • Tań∑es about 40 minutes if you opt for the audio self tour. Easy walk on fairly level ground
