Bodiam Castle is located in the south-east of England, a region located next to the English Channel.

This is one of the most famous castles in Britain.

Built in 1385 by Sir Edward Dallyngrigge, a former knight of Edward III in defense against the invasion of the French in the Hundred Years War. It served to the Dallyngrigge family also as a residential building.

Bodiam Castle was built in a very interesting way, and as one of the few it has the shape of a square, with four towers at each corner, surrounded by a moat. Before the gate of the castle you can see original wooden bars called harrows, which today are not often to be found in similar strongholds. In the middle of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries the castle was demolished, and renovated in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Neat, vast green spaces encourage to walking and blissful laziness. They are also an ideal place for a picnic.

Near the castle there is a parking lot; from February to October a small restaurant and gift shop are opened as well.
