We went to Pevensey Castle today having already looked up that you can take dogs on leads inside the castle ruins. So we had a long journey and parked in the all day car park outside the castle walls and this cost £2 for all...More

How can this be so highly rated - expensive - no cafes or facilities open except the pub - lets not go there!!!!!!!! forget everyones comments about the history - this is not worth the money - English Heritage should be ashamed of themselves.

A very impressive castle and grounds. A fair size, which we enjoyed walking around on a sunny November afternoon. Ample parking near by and no entry charge to the main open castle green.

Visited with my wife, daughter and dog. Great views of the surrounding area from the castle and grounds. Not a great deal here but very interesting to see such a historical site. The castle is in ruins and this is made clear on the website,...More

Parked in the local car park for £2.00. Walked through the grounds and didn’t go inside the castle entrance. Enchanting castle with historic wall. They are currently restoring some of the wall but it doesn’t detract from the historical atmosphere. Stunning feature in a small...More

My husband and I love historic places. And decided to have a look round the castle for our third trip to Pevensey. It is absolutely beautiful, and will definitely visit again when we come down to see my parents again.

Because of the the fantastic views and history of the castle it is well worth a visit. Children will love going into the dungeons. The whole area surrounding the castle is a lovely place for a picnic with plenty of space to run around

Nice walks through fields or car park at site. The grounds are large but just grass with some benches. Good for having picnic looking at Castle. Renovations taking place on the surrounding walls. £7.20 seems a bit high as you can see most of it...More

You have to look up the history of this place then try to understand exactly how important Pevensey was to us as an island nation. OK it's not an Arundel or Leeds type of castle but here you get the feeling rather a lot went...More
