Tonbridge boasts Kent's best example of a Motte-and-Bailey Gatehouse, and its mighty gatehouse is among the finest in England.

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.

Audio tours of the castle are available in English, French, Dutch, German and Spanish. Tonbridge Castle is owned and operated by Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council.

Please Note: 

The Castle will be closed for tours from 10am - 1pm on Saturday 28 March for a private function, sorry for any inconvenience this may cause
