One of the most famous and evocative castles in Britain, Bodiam was built in 1385, as both a defence and a comfortable home. The exterior is virtually complete and the ramparts rise dramatically above the moat. Enough of the interior survives to give an impression of castle life. There are spiral staircases and battlements to explore, and wonderful views of the Rother Valley from the top of the towers. An exciting events programme runs from mid February through to Santa's Christmas Grotto, including open-air theatre and 'The Grand Medieval weekend'. Activities for all the family daily through August. Dogs welcome on leads in grounds only
