Things to do at Broughton Castle review
Broughton Castle is a picturesque medieval fortified manor house near Banbury in Oxfordshire. The castle sits on an artificial island and is surrounded by a wide moat. It was built back in 1300 and has been transformed through the ages. Most of what you see today dates from the 1550s.
You can explore the manor house and see arms and armours in the Great Hall from the Civil War period. You can also see the gatehouse, dining room, long gallery, bedrooms, the great parlour, oak room and more.
There are beautiful gardens and parkland to also explore plus a 14th century parish church in which there are many family tombs. The gardens are a mix of formal and informal and are a great space for kids to burn off some energy. The castle is an overlooked gem.
