Bodiam Castle

Castles

  1. Bodiam Castle reflected in moat, East Sussex ©National Trust Images Chris Lacey
    Bodiam is one of Britain’s most picturesque castles in the heart of a historic landscape. As was Sir Edward Dallingridge’s vision when he built the castle in 1385, the approach to the castle with towers rising majestically from the moat is awe inspiring. With spiral stairs, battlements, windows for loosing arrows and ruins where knights once roamed, Bodiam is a place where you can let your imagination run free.
    1. Bridge, moat and gardens at Herstmonceux Castle.
      The oldest brick building of note still standing in the country, Herstmonceux Castle was also once the largest private home in fifteenth century England. Today, the majestic, moated castle is the centrepiece of a beautiful 300 acre estate.
    2. Camber Castle was one link in the chain of forts built along the south coast by Henry VIII in 1544. It was abandoned soon after it was built and is a rare example of its kind.
