Lewes Castle is positioned at the highest point of Lewes, East Sussex, and was originally called Bray Castle.
Prior to the stone castle evidence exists of a wooden keep. The castle is a motte and bailey construction but unlike most it has two mottes. Built in 1060’s by William de Warenne, 1st Earl of Surrey, and brother-in-law of William the Conqueror.
Open to the public, tickets are sold from Barbican House which is just opposite the entrance gate, and include access to the Barbican House Museum of Sussex archaeology and the Town Model. Various events take place at the castle, including two plays annually, children’s parties and weddings.
