Wander through the castle grounds

Enjoy a walk around the castle grounds

Did you know you can wander through the grounds at Bodiam Castle at any time from dawn to dusk?

The walk around the outside of the moat is a fantastic way to see the castle from all angles or to marvel at the reflection in the water on a clear day.  The castle has many different looks and it's a great way to stay fit whilst you discover them all.

Come visit us this springtime

Enjoy Bodiam in the winter

Our castle of wonder is a great place to be any day, any weather.  A brisk walk through the grounds and up to the castle is a great way to warm up on fresh Spring days and, look out for new arrivals on the moat as the first ducklings take to the water.  Climb the towers, admire the views and then head back down to our tea room for a warming cup of tea or delicious lunch.

What's growing in our herb garden?

The lungwort is in flower in our herb garden

The Claremont herb garden, next to our ticket office, is springing into life again after the winter. 

Grab a leaflet to guide you through the wide variety of herbs that were used in medieval times for cooking, healing, and well-being and see our lungwort and borage which are now in flower.
