Bringing History to Life

Mountfitchet Castle & Norman Village of 1066

Mountfitchet Castle is a unique open-air museum experience where the visitor can travel back in time over 900 years and truly witness life in a medieval Motte and Bailey castle.

Explore the Castle and roam through the Norman village hidden behind the castle walls, wander in and out of the many houses and view the scenes, smell the log fires burning and feel the ambience of a bygone lifestyle.

Meet and hand feed the tame Fallow deer and other rescued animals that roam freely throughout the 10 acre site.

Visit the only medieval Castle and Norman Village reconstructed on its original site to exist in the world.

An all-weather, all-in-one heritage entertainment complex where prehistory, history and nostalgia combine to make one great full exciting day out for the whole family.

Three fabulous attractions for one admission price, a fantastic family day out for all ages.
