FRAMLINGHAM CASTLE
Framlingham, IP13 9BP, Tel 01728 724189

Description
A superb 12th-century castle which, from the outside, looks almost the same as when it was built. From the continuous curtain wall, linking 13 towers, there are excellent views over Framlingham and the charming reed-fringed mere. At different times, the castle has been a fortress, an Elizabethan prison, a poor house and a school. The many alterations over the years have led to a pleasing mixture of historical styles. The Lanman Museum, containing a local history collection, can be seen for a small extra charge.
