Framlingham Castle was built by the Normans in the 12th Century and was home to the dukes of Norfolk for over 400 years (and yes, it's in Suffolk!). But the castle didn't just feature in Norman times, as it was where Mary Tudor was crowned queen...even if her reign was relatively short. Today you can walk around the massive castle walls, which have stood for more than 800 years. There is also a workhouse at Framlingham, which you can visit and see how the town's poorest worked for their keep back from the 17th to 19th centuries.
Framlingham Castle has been voted one of English Heritage's top ten family attractions by visitors.
