Mountfitchet Castle and Norman Village

Mountfitchet Castle – A unique history time capsule situated on its original site, which is steeped in history. This world-famous, historically accurate reconstructed castle and village enables the visitor to travel back in time to 1066 Norman England. Explore the Castle and roam through the Norman Village hidden behind the castle walls. Wander in and out of the many houses and dwellings, climb King Johns watch tower, have a go at the grinding wheel, sit in the stocks, try on a chain mail coif, marvel at the life sized medieval siege weapons and try to lift a heavy Knights sword - view the scenes, smell the log fires burning and experience the ambience of an ancient bygone lifestyle – a living history, hands-on and interactive experience. Mingle with and hand feed the many rescued animals including deer and goat that roam freely throughout the castle grounds and listen out for the echoes of long-forgotten voices...
