The striking twin-towered gatehouse of 14th century Donnington Castle, near Newbury, survives within impressive earthworks.
Members of CSSC benefit from a great range of discounted and free days out and shopping vouchers.
It shows the luxury enjoyed by Sir Richard Abberbury, Donnington's builder, whose private quarters lay within it. Both Henry VIII and Elizabeth I are thought to have stayed here. The large defences built to protect the castle during the English Civil War still survive.
