Come and hear the fascinating history of 900 years at Tiverton Castle and enjoy the beautiful gardens. Originally built in 1106, the castle was altered down the ages, once home of the medieval Earls of Devon and of Princess Katherine Plantagenet.
During the Civil War it was captured by Fairfax when a lucky shot hit the drawbridge chain. There is a fine collection of English Civil War arms and armour, some pieces of which can be tried on, which is popular with visitors of all ages. The furnishings and exhibits reflect the colourful history and development. With continuing conservation there is always something new and interesting to see.
