Points to note

Please check that we are open before you set out.

During open days, our tea room in the Keep sells refreshments and snacks.

Dogs are very welcome, except on Event days. Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times and are not permitted in the Castle itself.

Access to the Castle, and within it, involves steep stairs. Some parts of the grounds present varying degrees of difficulty for those with mobility issues, but there are easy, accessible walks for all.

The closest cash machine is at the Co-op in Sible Hedingham. For special event days, we would advise bringing cash as not all traders accept cards.

Adults £8.50, Over 65s £7.50, Children (between 5 and 18) £6, under fives are free, Family tickets are £25 and One adult family tickets are £17.50.
