Hedingham Castle

Hedingham Castle has a Norman Keep, 110 feet high and was built in c.1140 by Aubrey de Vare and still owned by one of his descendants. A visit to the castle and its grounds is an ideal family outing, and during the summer there are a variety of special events.  The grounds at the castle are fantastic and an ideal setting for a picnic. Why not also consider us for a school visit? Hedingham Castle makes an exciting and rewarding learning environment and can be linked to Key Stage 1 to 4 of the National Curriculum.
