Local Events


Severndroog Castle has embarked on an exciting new initiative, on Thursdays and Fridays throughout the year, they are now arranging group visits to explore the Castle. These are available for pre-booked groups of between 10 and 25 people for £5 per person. Visitors will have exclusive use of the Castle for the duration of the visit and will be hosted by experienced guides.

It’s a chance to learn the history of one of London’s “Hidden Gems”. Hear stories about the lives of Sir William and Lady Anne James in the 18th Century; find out what Severndroog is, why it is here and what it has been used for over the centuries.

The building is so much more than just a folly and has now been saved for all the community to enjoy.

There is also an opportunity to see one of the best views of London from the elevated viewing platform. See no fewer than seven counties and, on a clear day, it is possible to spot Windsor Castle almost thirty miles away! Also, nearer home, view Eltham and the surrounding area from a unique perspective.

Visitors can also experience the unique area in which the Castle stands and enjoy a self-guided nature trail around the Ancient Woodland which is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest. During term time educational visits for schools are available, and for youth/children’s groups during the school holidays.

The nearby Terrace Tearoom also offers a range of refreshments to be enjoyed in the Lady James Room to complete the experience.
