Bodiam Castle ~

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Archetypal 14th century moated castle with ruined interior - a glimpse of medieval splendour This fairytale castle is one of Britain's most romantic and picturesque, set in the heart of 1066 country. With spiral staircases, battlements and a portcullis, 14th-century Bodiam Castle is the real thing. Windows where arrows were once fired, a tower that was once a look-out and ruins that were once walked upon by knights; this is a place where you can relive your childhood memories and let your imagination run riot.

In the impressive gatehouse is the castle's original wooden portcullis, an extremely rare example of its kind. Enough of the interior ruins survive to give an impression of castle life. Gruesome and surprising tales can often be heard from our miller, baker and other colourful characters from the past. Plus we have lots of season events throughout the year.
