Each year a team of volunteers run guided tours of the town’s medieval cellars. All proceeds received (£5 per person) are used by the charity “Friends of the Ancient Monuments and Museum of Winchelsea (FOAM)” to help maintain and repair the Ancient Monuments of the town.

The town’s largest cellar, under Blackfriars Barn and owned by the National Trust, is open to the public on two occasions each year.

Please book our tours via email cellars@winchelsea.com or phone 07596 182874. Private tours for groups of 15 or more can be arranged – again, please email us if this is of interest.

Cellar tours take place on numerous weekends and bank holidays from April to October. The 2018 dates will decided early in the year and posted here immediately afterwards.

Tours start at the Town Well in Castle Street, Winchelsea. Please meet 10 minutes before start time. Tours last about 1½ hrs.
