Audio available to listen to the story of the castle. Very quiet in our visit. Small but nice to walk around. Pay on entry to castle but you can just walk around the outside too for free

You could combine a visit to pevensy castle with a visit to Battle and Hastings. Pevensey castle is a place with a rich history. Definitely worth the visit.
