Bodiam, Castle was built in 1385 by a local landowner, Sir Edward Dallingridge who had been a soldier of fortune in the 100 years of war against France. He wanted to impress his friends and frighten his enemies.

The castle has remained uninhabbited since 16454 when Oliver Cromwell's soldiers destroyed much of the interiror. In 1828 an accentric local squire called 'Mad@ Jack Fuller added it to his collection. Later it was bequeathed to the National Trust who work to conserve the 600 year old building.

Bodiam can be reached by a ride on a steam or deisel train along the Kent and East Sussex Railway whose Station at Bodiam is 400 yards from the castle grounds entrance. If you arrive by train you may qualify for a discount off castle admission.
