AboutSet in the picturesque valley of the River Frome, this impressive castle offers hidden treasures and a sinister past. The castle has many unique features, including the remarkable 14th century chapel which houses the tombs of past generations of the Hungerford family. It also boasts rare wall paintings and a collection of lead death masks. You can relive the troubled and sometimes gruesome history of Farleigh Hungerford Castle and discover the crimes and intrigues of its Hungerford lords through the fascinating audio tour. After you have explored the castle ruins, why not visit the Priest’s House and the beautiful chapel of St Leonard’s. Descend into the crypt and see for yourself the sinister ‘portrait’ coffins. The Priest’s House also contains finds from past excavations and a virtual tour which helps bring the castle to life - fun for all the family!
