Caister Castle
Caister Castle was built in 1432 by Sir John Fastolf. The 90 foot tower remains intact and visitors can climb to the top for a magnificent view of the castle ruins and the surrounding area. The castle is of historical interest both because it is one of earliest buildings in England of importance to be built of brick and because of its connection with Fastolf and later the Paston family.

Motor Museum
The Castle is currently home to the largest private collection of motor vehicles in Britain which is housed in a purpose built museum and includes many fine and rare veteran, vintage, classic, sports and touring automobiles and motorcycles.

Highlights include:
• An 1893 Panhard et Levassor (the first real car in the world)
• The very first Ford Fiesta off the production line
• Jim Clark´s Lotus
• Peter Rachman´s Cadillac
• A Bentley Speed 6
• Bugatti
• Harley Davidson and many more...

The collection is complemented by a display of bicycles, horse-drawn vehicles, pedal cars and other related items.

The castle and museum are open to the public from the middle of May until the last Friday in September.
Open 10.00am to 4.30pm daily except Saturdays.
