Pevensey Castle online: information and bookings

After sixty years of assaults from violent Saxon invaders, the Roman fort of Anderida was weary with war but its ordeal had only just begun.  A few centuries later another invader, William of Normandy, landed nearby and turned it into Pevensey Castle by building upon the old Roman walls.

Later it was adapted to counter the threat of the Spanish Armada, Napoleon and even Hitler.

Peel away Pevensey's conflicting, contradictory layers and unearth the complex and unpredictable contours of English history...
