Donnington Castle is a ruined medieval castle, of which only the gatehouse survives. The castle was founded by Sir Richard Abberbury the Elder in 1386 and was bought by Thomas Chaucer before the castle was taken under royal control during the Tudor period. During the First English Civil War the castle withstood an 18-month siege; after the garrison eventually surrendered, Parliament voted to demolish Donnington Castle in 1646. The site is under the care of English Heritage.
It is supposed to be haunted by a silent white spectral hound, and a phantom guard patrols the Gatehouse.
