About the garden

Set in the picturesque valley of the River Frome, the castle offers a range of unique features, including the remarkable 14th century chapel housing the tombs of past inhabitants, alongside towers and gardens to explore.

Fairleigh Hungerford Castle provides a wonderful day out and picnic spot for a variety of visitors including families, couples and walkers. There are many hidden treasures to delight in with extensive displays in the Priest’s house, and for those who are brave enough to enter the crypt, there’s the best collection of human-shaped lead coffins in Britain.
