Severndroog Castle was originally built to celebrate the life of Sir William James, a commander in the Bombay Marine and later a director of the British East India Company. As a result, the castle has a connection to the colonisation and exploitation of India.
This is a lovely destination for a dog walk immersed in nature without leaving town, as the castle stands in Castle Wood, adjoined with Jack Wood and Oxleas Woods, covering over 77 hectars of land.
Dogs are very welcome at Severndroog Castle’s tea room on the ground floor, for some treats and refreshment, while they are not unfortunately allowed inside the rest of the castle or on the viewing platform at the top.
