Few buildings evoke such a feeling of history as venerable Tiverton Castle.
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 of Princess Katherine Plantagenet who called herself "daughter, sister and aunt of kings" but, tellingly, not "niece of" the King in the Car Park.
Besieged during the English Civil War by General Sir Thomas Fairfax, it fell due to a lucky shot hitting a drawbridge chain. This was the only time in its long history that it saw battle. There is a fine collection of Civil War arms and armour, some pieces of which can be tried on - great fun for children. Medieval loos (once cleaned out by children), secret passages, ghost stories, interesting furniture and pictures, beautiful garden.
