Good old Norman ruin, walk about the site and with a little imagination step back in time and consider how tough it must have been 1000 years ago.

A very impressive castle and grounds. A fair size, which we enjoyed walking around on a sunny November afternoon. Ample parking near by and no entry charge to the main open castle green.

Visited with my wife, daughter and dog. Great views of the surrounding area from the castle and grounds. Not a great deal here but very interesting to see such a historical site. The castle is in ruins and this is made clear on the website,...More

Parked in the local car park for £2.00. Walked through the grounds and didn’t go inside the castle entrance. Enchanting castle with historic wall. They are currently restoring some of the wall but it doesn’t detract from the historical atmosphere. Stunning feature in a small...More

My husband and I love historic places. And decided to have a look round the castle for our third trip to Pevensey. It is absolutely beautiful, and will definitely visit again when we come down to see my parents again.

Because of the the fantastic views and history of the castle it is well worth a visit. Children will love going into the dungeons. The whole area surrounding the castle is a lovely place for a picnic with plenty of space to run around

After a lovely visit to the castle and shop, we took refreshments at the castle cafe. We unfortunately left our gifts and didn't realise until we were back in Leeds. The staff at both the café & the castle went out of their way to...More

Nice walks through fields or car park at site. The grounds are large but just grass with some benches. Good for having picnic looking at Castle. Renovations taking place on the surrounding walls. £7.20 seems a bit high as you can see most of it...More
