The world-famous Suffolk landmark Framlingham Castle is set to reopen to visitors on July 4 as coronavirus lockdown restrictions continue to ease.
The 12th century fortress, which was propelled to international fame by Ed Sheeran’s 2017 hit ‘Castle on the Hill’, was forced to close in March in line with government guidance.
But as more and more restrictions are lifted, owners English Heritage have announced plans to reopen the castle doors at the start of next month.
Tickets will have to be prebooked and visitors will have to select a time of arrival.
English Heritage have said “things might be a little different” at the castle upon reopening.
