Bruce Castle is a Grade I listed 16th Century manor house in 20 acres of parkland. Henry VIII stayed here, Queen Elizabeth I visited in 1593, and Sir Rowland Hill - who invented the postage stamp - lived here in the 19th century.
Bruce Castle opened as a Museum in 1906 and houses local history collections relating to Haringey. It has historic interior recreations, including a 1930s office (see picture), two galleries and The Inventor Centre - an interactive display that celebrates local inventions and innovations. The castle is also rumoured to have a ghost who appears in November.
Drop-in family arts & craft workshops take place most Sundays 2-4pm.
Bruce Castle Park was the first public park in Tottenham. There is a Tree Trail to follow and the park is part of the Better Haringey Walking Trail. The historic All Hallows Church and Tottenham Cemetery can be found behind the Castle.
