AUDIO GUIDE

Take a tour of Lewes Castle and Barbican House Museum using our free audio guide app. Explore the site with characters from the castle’s past and present, their voices woven into access information. The guide is triggered using iBeacon, so you can keep your device in your pocket and simply concentrate on the audio experience. It can also be used manually, if you prefer.
