Medieval character talks
During January join our medieval characters in the castle for a chat about life in medieval England.
The castle is quiet at this time of the year so you'll be treated to personalised attention and the chance to find some of the interesting facts about Bodiam and the Dallingridge family who created this magnificent home and castle.
Wrap up warmly, but if you still find it a bit chilly, then we've made some lovely warm cloaks for you to borrow to keep out the keen winds of winter.
Volunteer at the castle
If your New Year's resolution is to do something worthwhile, then come along to Bodiam Castle and join our merry band of volunteers.
We've opportunities in our Visitor Services team, admin, shop or tea room that will provide you with a great way to meet lots of new people and support our work here at the castle.
Call 01580 831327 to register your interest.

Walk the dog
Enjoy the peace and tranquility of the castle grounds at this time of the year with your dog for company.
We welcome dog walkers and their dogs on leads in the castle grounds at all times of the year, and if you're a member you and your canine friend can walk around for free - just show your membership card at the ticket office.
For those dog walkers wishing to visit the castle we have a dog tethering point at Castle Cottage, opposite the castle entrance, where you can leave your dog during your visit. We regret that only assistance dogs are permitted in the castle itself.
