Lewes (3) Location map
 
  Scene showing the Barbican Gate, Lewes Castle, Lewes, Sussex, England   Lewes.

This fine Barbican Tower wasn't built until 300 years after the keep and now houses a small museum. Visitors can climb to the top of the tower for some fine views over the town.

The castle was closed during the winter for essential maintenance and was still closed when we were there so we were not able to go in.
