Severndroog Castle

Arts Added 27th Apr 2017

Business Overview

Severndroog Castle was first built as a memorial to Sir William James, the British commander famed for his campaigns against foreign navies, by his widow.

It has stood since it was built in 1755 on one of the highest points in London in Oxleas Woods on Shooter’s Hill, offering an incredible view over the city.

For a long time in recent history it was on the Buildings at Risk registers, until a campaign group was founded in 2002 to raise funds and restore the tower. It was reopened in 2014.

It is now open to public, offers educational tours for local schools and youth groups and is available for private hire for weddings and other events.
