Parties at Lewes Castle

Standing tall and proud in the heart of Lewes is the stunning Norman ruin of Lewes Castle. Once a stronghold of William the Conqueror the story pages of this amazing thousand-year-old castle tell tales of chivalrous knights, courageous Countesses, courtly romance, brave battles, and of course joyous feasting and lavish celebrations with no expense spared by the ruling Earls of Surrey. Long retired as the impressive noble home and defensive stronghold of the South Downs, Lewes Castle is now a fairy-tale ruin with breath taking views of the surrounding countryside, mysterious towers and a beautiful walled garden. Why not follow in the footsteps of the Earls and Countesses of Surrey and play host at your very own castle for the day?
