Hedingham Castle

This majestic castle stands in the heart of its ancient ramparts and medieval park, which have evolved into beautiful landscaped gardens. Privately owned by the Lindsay family, descendants of the Earls of Oxford who built it, Hedingham Castle is not just one place. Romantic, exquisite, significant, magnificent and ageless, it is a haven which has had great meaning for 900 years. Its character is revered and its history is the heritage of us all.


Hedingham Castle is the most iconic of all East Anglian fortresses commanding Essex for nine centuries.

Climb the Great Tower, and immerse yourself in vivid medieval interiors. Delve deep into the historical atmosphere by coming to one of our legendary events, or escape here for the day and roam through the centuries in the ancient landscape.

With so much to see and do it is the ultimate day out.
