Castle is a perfect example of a late medieval moated castle.
of the most famous and evocative castles in Britain, Bodiam
was built in
1385, as both a defence and a comfortable home. The exterior
is virtually complete and the ramparts rise dramatically above
the moat. Enough of the
interior survives to give an impression of castle life.There
are spiral staircases
and battlements to explore and wonderful views of the Rother
Valley from the
top of the towers.
