East Sussex | Picture Perfect Roadschooling at Bodiam Castle
Closer to France than London (45miles), Bodiam Castle is certainly one of Britain’s most picturesque and magical castles. Set in a charming location close to some of East Sussex’s most beautiful villages. It attracts thousands of visitors each year either by car or even by steam train from Tenterden!
So as those guys at ‘Wales Online’ say…. why not get out with your kids and use some of British’s undoubted historical treasures to add to your growing ‘ed-ventures‘ experiences. (see the full article about our adventures here)
So how would you describe Bodiam Castle
Not only does it offer a great tour inside including access to the ‘bat room’, ‘medieval chapel’, ‘private rooms’ and a chance to walk the battlements…. there’s also plenty on offer outside the moat including archery, historical exhibitions, a variety of educational activity boards and some glorious places for a picnic! Plus it’s motorhome friendly too!!

We’ve really fallen in love with this laid back part of England. Perhaps even more so now we’ve clambered along some of it’s beautiful cliffs beside the Seven Sisters (see here), scaled some of it’s castle towers at Bodiam or even got friendly with its wildlife in the Ashdown Forest !!
