We are proud to say that Herefordshire’s Hampton Court Castle predates Hampton Court Palace by some 80 years. The land was granted by King Henry IV to Sir Rowland Lenthall at the time of his marriage to Margaret Fitzalan, daughter of the Earl of Arundel, a cousin of the King. Lenthall built the original quadrangular manor house in 1427, 12 years after his Knighthood at the battle of Agincourt (1415). In 1434 he was granted licence to crenellate the house by King Henry VI. The journey the Castle has had since that time is interesting.

Hampton Court Castle can be hired for weddings, private functions and corporate events.
