Pevensey castle is a medieval castle and Roman fort (Anderita) dating back to the beginning of the 4th century when it was one of the last and strongest of the Roman Saxon Shore forts, two-thirds of whose towered walls still stand.

Pevensey Bay was the landing place of William the Conqueror's army in 1066. During the century after the Conquest a full-scale Norman castle, with a great square keep and a powerful gatehouse, was built within one corner of the fort. The towered bailey wall was added in the 1250s.

The castle withstood the great siege of 1264-65 when supporters of Henry III took refuge and were besieged by Simon De Montfort following the Battle of Lewes.
