Broughton Castle is a medieval fortified manor house in the village of Broughton, which is about two miles south-west of Banbury in Oxfordshire, England, on the B4035 road (grid reference SP418382). It is the home of the Fiennes (in full Twisleton-Wykeham-Fiennes) family, Barons Saye and Sele. The castle sits on an artificial island in pastureland and is surrounded by a wide moat. Across the small bridge lies the parish church of St Mary the Virgin, surrounded by its historic cemetery. A Grade I listed building, it opens to the public over the summer.Make Broughton Castle part of your personalized Banbury itinerary using our Banbury online trip itinerary planner.

Broughton Castle reviews
Fascinating, quirky castle. Beautiful surroundings. Very pretty garden borders. Lovely café and tasteful shop goods. Workers & volunteers seem to want to share their love of the place.

Rarely seen ' English long horn' cows can be seen grazing on the fields. Though closed for some months of the year, allows visitors to take a walk 🚶♂️ on their farm land. Loved it.
Beautiful place and full of history! And best of all, it's NOT a national trust place so feels far far better for it, feels very much like a home which the owners have opened up for us to enjoy without the rediculous rules NT places have! Loved it! ❤️❤️❤️
