Once a fearsome fortress, muster your courage and explore Framlingham Castle’s towering walls. It was behind these walls that Mary Tudor was proclaimed Queen of England. Discover more of Framlingham’s stories in our exhibition, walk the ramparts of the castle to enjoy its breath-taking views or taste some Tudor inspired delights in our new café.
Framlingham is a magnificent late 12th-century castle, its striking outline reflected in the nearby mere. Surrounded by parkland and estates, it was once at the centre of a vast network of power and influence. Its owners for over 400 years were the Earls and Dukes of Norfolk, the supreme magnates in East Anglia – rich, ambitious and influential both at home and abroad.
