Reputedly England's finest example of a Motte and Bailey Castle with a splendid 13th Century Gatehouse.
Tonbridge Castle is set in landscaped gardens overlooking the River Medway. Yet its glory lies not only in what can be seen. Its story is interwoven with that of kings and archbishops, tyrants and heroes, murderers and mercenaries who, on this ancient site and inside these weathered stone walls, have helped write 900 years of English history.
