See what came before the brass monkeys
Located on the banks of the river Exe, you'll find the remains of this semi-dismantled castle.

Tiverton Castle

A visit here will provide you with a unique insight into the history of the local area and its importance on events in England's past.

The original building was constructed in around 1106 and subsequently extended over the centuries with the rear section being dismantled after the civil war in the 16th Century, then the remains were converted to a country manor house in the 17th century

Due to the Castle still being a family home and not part of the National Trust or similar organisation, visiting is only possible on Thursdays and Sundays from Easter Sunday till the end of October.

With several different rooms open to the public, including the original round tower, each room contains detailed information about the objects on display and history of the building.

Outside is a large garden that leads down to the river Exe, this has been planted up with an array of different flowers and has a good size English vegetable garden along with the remaining sections of the original castle that had been dismantled.

If you want to experience living in a castle, self-catering accommodation is also available.
