Our Story

This 18th century Gothic tower, with 360° views of London, was built in ancient woodland by Lady Ann James in memory of her husband, Commodore Sir William James of the East India Company.

The castle is perched on one of South-East London's highest points and offers exceptional views of London and its surrounding counties. When visiting, you can also tour the rest of the building and learn about its rich history, as well as explore the surrounding woodland. For a welcomed break, the Tearoom offers an array of hot drinks, lunches and homemade cakes.

Severndroog Castle also hosts an exciting programme of events for all ages, and is available for private hire (weddings and parties). For more information, please visit our website www.SeverndroogCastle.org.uk.

Viewing platform open Sundays 10:00-15:30. Tearoom open Thursday-Sunday, 10:00-16:00.
