All of our virtual exhibitions and guides are free to view. However, if you are able to make a donation to the castle, we would be very grateful. We have had no income while Severndroog has been closed to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and are at risk of permanent closure.

​Severndroog has inspired many writers, including Charles Dickens and E. Nesbit. Discover how authors and poets from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries have reimagined the tower as a haunted castle, a troubling monument to empire and a site of both profound trauma and healing.
