About Bodiam Castle

Set in the heart of an historic landscape, with spiral staircases, battlements and a portcullis, 14th century Bodiam Castle is one of Britain's most picturesque and romantic ancient monuments. Windows where arrows were once loosed, a tower that was once a look-out and ruins that were once walked upon by knights; this is a place where you can relive your childhood memories and let your imagination run riot.

Bodiam Castle was saved from demolition by the MP John ‘Mad Jack’ Fuller, who bought the castle at auction in 1828. Fuller – an anti-abolitionist who held extreme views on the benefits of slavery – inherited huge wealth made from slavery in Jamaica, and he continued to profit from the sugar trade during his life. 

In the impressive gatehouse is the castle's original wooden portcullis, an extremely rare example of its kind and, beyond into the courtyard, enough of the interior ruins survive to give an impression of castle life.
