Lewes Castle
This is a suitable option for kids of all ages. As well as the castle grounds, tower and barbican to explore, there is also fun to be had in the museum. In fact, it is recommended that you visit here first, to watch ‘The Story of Lewes Town’, a sound and light show based around a scale model of the town. Also, if you pay your admission via gift aid, you get a years entry thrown in free – which gives your kids free reign to explore as many times as they like over the summer holidays: More info:
