Tiverton Castle, Tiverton, Devon
The romantic ruins of a castle with its origins in the 12th century when it was built of wood. Tiverton Castle was rebuilt in stone in 1293 and part of it still stands serving as a private house, but the owners happily open their doors to the public during the year. Find out about ghostly goings on, discover secret passages and try on English Civil War armour. The walled gardens are peaceful and span three acres, including a kitchen garden, orchard and riverside woodland. It really is like something out of a fairytale.
Open Easter Sunday to the end of October on Sundays, Thursdays and Bank Holiday Mondays from 2.30pm-5.30pm. Group visits outside of these hours – please ring to arrange.
