Details

Discover one of England’s most complete and unusual keeps at this fascinating attraction. The polygonal tower keep stands beside the pretty town and former port which Henry II also developed here. The castle is remarkably intact allowing visitors to explore the basement, lower and upper halls and the roof where there are magnificent views to Orford Ness. Around the rooms is a maze of passages leading to the chapel, kitchen and other chambers in the turrets.
