We are currently carrying out the third phase of conservation work to the castle wall, which means that part of the wall walk will be unavailable. Access to the walls will be via stone spiral stairs and descent will be via a temporary staircase. For more details please contact the castle.
Framlingham Castle is a magnificent 12th century fortress with a long and colourful past which makes a fascinating family day out in Suffolk.
The castle was once the refuge of Mary Tudor before she became Queen in 1553 and visitors can now explore over 800 years of life at Framlingham Castle in the ‘From Powerhouse to Poorhouse’ exhibition.
Embark on a self-guided journey of discovery with our themed trails and lively audio tour, and explore the Mere and the wall-walk with its spectacular views over the surrounding landscape. Younger audiences will enjoy a variety of themed games and interactives.
