There are essential works taking place on the curtain wall masonry. Please note there will be scaffolding set up around the castle and people will be working on site every week day with associated work vehicles and equipment on site. This work is ongoing but should not affect the visitor experience to the site; we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Standing within an attractive village setting, not far from the fantastic Lullingstone Roman Villa, is Eynsford Castle - a very early Norman 'enclosure castle' whose substantial stone walls present a rare survival of this striking and impressive style.
Begun around 1085-7 and largely undisturbed by later building activity, Eynsford Castle is unusual in that it did not have a keep or great tower. Instead, the principal domestic apartments were situated on the first floor of the castle's hall, the ruins of which can still be explored by visitors today.
