A really interesting little place for a walk and picnic, you can walk around the castle keep and see for miles around the area, or trundle around the gardens with an awesome hill for rolling down :)

Standing on the crest of a hill overlooking the town of Farnham are the impressive motte and 'shell keep' of a castle founded in 1138 by Henry of Blois, Bishop of Winchester and brother of King Stephen. In medieval times the diocese of Winchester was the richest in England, and Farnham was a favourite residence of the bishops. The castle was rebuilt in the late 12th and early 13th centuries, but a viewing platform reveals the buried remains of an earlier tower. 

Managed by Farnham Castle. Other parts of the castle are privately o
