Lewes Castle & Museum is currently closed in-line with Government restrictions. We apologise for any disappointment this may cause and look forward to welcoming you again soon.
As a charity we receive no core government funding and rely solely on the generosity of our members and the public. If you would like to support us you can make a donation here.
Climb to the top for stunning panoramic views 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.

We only allow assistance dogs into the museum and gardens.
Why not download our Lewes Castle audio guide?
