Help us enhance our visitor facilities at Lewes Castle and together we'll ensure every visit is one to treasure.

Project by The Sussex Archaeological Society

A Norman castle built after the Battle of Hastings by supporters of William the Conqueror, Lewes Castle provides an iconic backdrop for all who visit the historic town of Lewes.


Those visiting the Castle get to climb the steps to the top of the Keep to witness stunning views across Sussex, as well as soaking in the history of this 950-year-old fortress. 

With challenging economic conditions being felt right across the heritage sector, our role as a guardian of Sussex’s heritage is becoming increasingly difficult. You can help us undertake important conservation work, enhancing the experience for all who visit and safeguarding these wonderful properties for future generations to enjoy.  

We specifically need your help in making Lewes Castle even more of an unmissable destination, with enhancements to the surrounding Gun Garden and installation of a new café.

Our Trustees have generously pledged £2,500 towards the work, but we need your support to raise more and ensure the work can be completed.


Please consider donating, as every contribution, no matter the amount, helps us reach our goal.


How to donate
