A 12th century castle in the market town of Framlingham in Woodbridge, Suffolk. Once owned by Mary Tudor and later used by Elizabeth I as a prison for priests who defied the Church of England.

The following Knightmare scenes were filmed at Framlingham Castle:

 [Related Image] Series 4 dungeoneers arriving on Treguard's doorstep.
 [Related Image] The supports in the background are the remains of a footbridge on the eastern side, leading from the castle to a large hunting park.
 [Related Image] The room where each Series 4 dungeoneer acquired the Eyeshield from either Hordriss, Malice or Merlin. This is located inside the Poorhouse.
 [Related Image] It made a further appearance in Series 5, when Ben met Elita in a strangely modified version of the room (now in Level 3).
 [Related Image] Pickle expressed amazement every time the Eyeshield started working: "It sees, master, it sees!"
 [Related Image] The western side of the castle was used as the path home for departing teams in Series 4.
 [Related Image] This area beside the Prison Tower later became Winteria, where Team 4 of Series 5 chose Level 3 clue objects...
 [Related Image] ...and went on to defeat Aesandre.
 [Related Image] The end credits of Series 4 episodes 5, 6 and 8 showed a dungeoneer exploring the moat, passing Tower 2 on the south side.
 [Related Image] The dungeoneer climbs a spiral staircase and walks over some stone foundations on the earthworks to the north-west of the castle. Towers 8 and 9 can be seen here.
 [Related Image] The final shot is a view of the castle from across the Mere (a large artificial lake on the western side).
 [Related Image] Slightly different views of the Mere appeared behind the end credits of Series 4 episode 15...
 [Related Image] ...and Series 5 episode 8.

Framlingham Castle is now managed by English Heritage and is open to the public. Click here to visit the website.
