According to the records, Bishop Osmund of Salisbury constructed the first fortress around 1080. During King Henry I’s reign, it was destroyed by fire and rebuilt in stone. Afterwards, it gained popularity as a royal home.

There were rumors that Edward I, Henry III, and King John had all stayed at the fortress. It seems that it was held by the Crown until the 17th century, at which point it was inherited by the English queens, including the wives of Henry VIII.
