Yes this is a ruined castle but, it is a slice of history. This castle has played an important role in British history and I learnt so much from my visit. If you want refreshments, I would recommend the castle tea rooms.

Old stone walls where once a beautiful castle stood with a big battle with King Harold and lots of history. A pretty sun over the walls and a pub lays at the bottom of the site.

Seriously interesting. Bit pricy to see the inner bit but worth it. Loads of history inside with pics of how it used to be.

Went for a stroll round the outside as part of a treasure hunt. Huge area to picnic in if wanted. Signs up regarding old gun encampments and the walls. Worth it for a freebie

Went to see this ancient castle recently. It dates back to William the Conqueror so it’s steeped in history. As a site to visit there’s not really a huge amount to see because most of it is in ruins but nevertheless it’s worth a look...More

Don’t get too excited as it’s a simple walk around a ruined castle and grounds. Lovely location though and a cracking pub nearby so well worth a visit. Have dogs? Can really recommend a dog walk in the rec grounds and fields behind the castle.

Considering the castle survived three major sieges, was abandoned when the sea retreated a few miles, and so now is really quite ruined, this was a most interesting visit. Take the audio tour and discover the fascinating history. Pevensey is famous for being the landing...More
