Where you can also see Brack Mount – unusually, Lewes Castle has not one but two castle mounds.

The Museum of Sussex Archaeology next door at Barbican House has local collections from the prehistoric period to the present. A mini-cinema tells the story of Lewes and our bookshop sells new and second-hand books, on the history and archaeology of Lewes, Sussex and the South Downs.
