  • A fairly intact ruin set in a peaceful setting and quiet village. Great just to wander around the castle, inside and out.
  • Great place to learn about the history of the south coast. Nearby pub also offers good food.
  • Serene and contemplative place. You can walk freely into the circle of external walls.
  • 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 Wermact 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.
  • Loved this place. Full of history and views. Very peaceful
