Things to see and do

Wall Walk

Embark on a journey of discovery around the magnificent wall walk. At a spectacular 10.5 metres high and 2.3 metres thick, this curtain wall has stood for more than 800 years - look down if you dare…

Enjoy the spectacular views of Framlingham mere and surrounding countryside.  Take the opportunity to count our chimneys, these are the oldest surviving 12th century and Tudor chimneys in the country.

Slide into History

Choose to take a more unusual approach to getting down from the castle’s wall walk and ride the 6.6 metre slide! The slide is in place until May 2017 so make the most of this unique experience whilst the visitor improvement and conservation project is taking place.

Picnic, Play and Shop

Grab a snack from our kiosk and play knights and princesses on the lawn inside the castle walls. Or you can bring a picnic and just relax and soak up the views.

Families with energy to burn can grab an audio trail designed for the kids and head out to explore the grounds.

Take inspiration from history at the temporary shop where you can pick up jams and chutneys, wines, beers, books, garden gifts and more.

NEW for 2017

In winter 2016 work started on a £1.2 million visitor improvement project at the castle which will see a new 40-seat café being created and an improved exhibition space added from a new mezzanine level within the Poorhouse. During this time the Poorhouse will be completely closed to the public. Find out more about the project.
