Escorted Rail Tours to Dunster Castle
A historic landmark of Exmoor
Situated on top of a wooded hill, Dunster Castle overlooks the pretty Exmoor village of the same name, and affords great views over the Bristol Channel. The home of the Luttrell family, Dunster Castle was their primary seat for more than 600 years, when the dynasty's lands stretched out across much of Exmoor. There has been a fortress on the site since at least Norman times, though only the gatehouse remains completely intact from that period, because much of the castle was later remodelled by Victorian architects.
