The remains of Farleigh Hungerford Castle stand in the beautiful valley of the river Frome, just nine miles from Bath. Started in the 14th century, the fortified mansion still has much for visitors to enjoy – providing a great day out for families, couples, and walkers enjoying the surrounding countryside.
The castle was occupied for 300 years by the remarkable Hungerford family and today their intriguing, yet sometimes gruesome stories are told through graphic panels and a free audio tour. There are many hidden treasures – the chapel with rare medieval wall paintings and family tombs, 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.
