Farleigh Hungerford Castle

Farleigh Hungerford, Norton St Philip, Bath, Somerset, BA2 7RS, Tel: 01225 754026

Farleigh Hungerford Castle lies in picturesque countryside just nine miles from Bath. The remains of this fortified mansion was occupied for 300 years by the Hungerford family. Intriguing, yet gruesome stories are told through graphic interpretation panels and a free audio tour.

There are many hidden treasures including the chapel with rare medieval wall painting and family tombs, extensive displays in the Priest's House and the crypt which contains the best collection of human shaped lead coffins in Britain.
