The old castle has its origins in the 14th century and forms the centrepiece of Scotney's Picturesque landscape. On this 45-minute tour you'll see areas not normally open to the public such as the kitchen, garde-robe, priest hole, and inside the iconic Ashburnham tower itself. You'll learn a little of the castle's long and colourful history, hear what's involved in looking after it, how it has starred in films, and about the recent archaeological dig and our plans for re-planting the ruins.
