At Framlingham Castle you are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy in the grounds and there are picnic tables near the kiosk. There are a male, female and disabled toilet at the car park.
Dogs on leads are permitted in the grounds. Entry includes access to the Lanman Trust's Museum of local history so go and explore that as well! The exhibition in the Poorhouse tells the story of the people who lived in the castle throughout its long and varied history.
The thought provoking displays illustrate the struggle for power between monarchs and the lords of Framlingham over the ages; the tragic stories of famous family members Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard (who were both married to, and beheaded by, Henry VIII); the accession of Queen Mary Tudor and the Poorhouse itself which was still in use until 1839. The Poorhouse Kitchen offers an area where visitors can enjoy a selection of factual and fictional books relating to the great Framlingham Castle.
Visitors can also explore the Mere, the castle's outer courts and the wall walk with spectacular views over the surrounding countryside with lots of space for children to run and play, and kites are encouraged so bring one along!
