Be a real knight or princess for the day at Bodiam Castle

Robertsbridge, East Sussex

Take a glimpse of medieval splendour where brooding walls rise majestically from a moat, and let the magic of Bodiam Castle capture your imagination.

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, fourteenth-century Bodiam Castle is the real thing.

You will find 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.

Built in 1385 by Sir Edward Dallingridge, Bodiam Castle is set in open parkland and approached through a series of medieval water features, including a picturesque spring- filled moat.
