Few buildings evoke such a feeling of history as the venerable Tiverton Castle, which is over 900 years old.

Originally built in 1106 by order of Henry I, and later rebuilt and much enlarged in the 13th and 14th centuries, it was once home of the powerful medieval Earls of Devon and a Plantagenet Princess. With later additions and alterations through the centuries all periods of architecture from medieval to modern can be seen, with beautiful walled gardens within the romantic ruins.

Permanent collection

The buildings, furnishings and exhibits of Tiverton Castle reflect its colourful history and development. As well as a Devon gold and silver mineral collection, there are examples of Civil War arms and armour – some pieces of which can be tried on.
