Castle Rising Castle

0370 3331181

Castle Rising Castle is one of the most famous 12th Century castles in England. The stone keep, built in around 1140 AD, is amongst the finest surviving examples of its kind anywhere in the country and, together with the massive surrounding earthworks, ensures that Rising is a castle of national importance. In its time Rising has served as a hunting lodge, royal residence, and for a brief time in the 18th century even housed a mental patient.

Throughout the year the Castle is host to a number of exciting events. We bring history alive with amazing reenactments that include dazzling displays of Medieval swordsmanship, archery and lots more. Please keep checking our Events page to see what we have going on.
