Does anyone know how much it would cost to buy the Bodiam Castle in Sussex?

It isn't for sale at any price. Sorry.

You said that it wasn't for sale at any price, but who owns it? It's a museum, right? Well If someone were to have enough money is it possible to buy it? Or what would it cost to build an exact replica of that castle?

Bodium castle is owned by the National Trust. This is a charity set up to preserve the national heritage of England and Wales (Scotland has it's own National Trust). The executive group that runs the trust can be an arrogant bunch with quirky ways, they resisted the members demands to stop fox hunting on Trust property for many years. However I can not see that they would every survive a plan to sell Bodium castle, even if they were stupid enough to consider it. The membership of the trust would lynch them. Hence Bodium Castle is not for sale at any price. However if you join the National Trust you will own a tiny bit of Bodium Castle (along with a few million other people)
