About Bishop’s Waltham Palace
Bishop’s Waltham Palace is a medieval castle in Hampshire built in the 12th century, although the current picturesque ruins mostly date from the early 14th century works of the Bishop William Wykeham. In its time, Bishop’s Waltham Palace acted as a residence for a series of the Bishops of Winchester and their clergy until it was destroyed during the English Civil War.
Today, the ground floor of Bishop’s Waltham Palace is the location of the Bishop’s Waltham Town Museum and the site is under the remit of English Heritage.
