Few buildings evoke such an immediate feeling of history as Tiverton Castle. Originally built in 1106 by order of Henry I, it was rebuilt and enlarged in the 13th century, and with changes and additions down the centuries nowadays all ages of architecture from medieval to modern can be seen. Once home of the powerful medieval Earls of Devon and a Plantagenet Princess, and besieged by Fairfax during the English Civil War, the Castle has witnessed extremes of peace and turbulence. The furnishings and exhibits reflect the colourful history and development. Superb holiday accommodation. Beautiful gardens.
