Hedingham Castle is a Norman motte and bailey castle with a stone keep 110 feet high. For four centuries it was the primary seat of the de Vere family, Earls of Oxford. Aubrey de Vere was one of William the Conqueror’s most favoured knights. His son Aubrey II built a huge castle at Hedingham c.1140.
A family visit to the castle and its grounds is ideal, and during the summer there are a variety of special events, including exciting Jousting Tournaments.
The castle also hosts weddings and other events.
