- Castles and Palaces
Suitable for all ages
Venue type: Indoor, Outdoor
Tiverton Castle is a wonderfully atmospheric castle to visit, with a 3 acre garden to explore, and plenty for the whole family to see and do.
You can learn the history of the castle as you walk round, with plenty of exhibitions and displays, plus a mix or architecture to see. Read about secret passages and ghost stories, feel the weight of a cannon ball, and see some interesting furniture and Royal pictures. You can even try on some English Civil war armour, and check out the medieval garderobes (toilets) that were originally cleaned by children!
You will want to make sure that you allow enough time to explore the wonderful walled gardens that surround the castle. There are a number of lovely colourful borders, and some rare and interesting plants. There is also a well-stocked working Kitchen Garden, and an orchard with several old varieties of fruit trees, plus a small bog garden in the woodland down by the river. The garden covers about 3 acres and is mainly level, making it easy to navigate.
