For Visitors

Pictons Medieval Entrance in May

There is always something new to see and do.

  • Visit and enjoy superb collections, A beautiful hybrid, Picton Castle consists of a 13th century castle with a splendid Georgian wing. Guided tours span nearly 800 years of history, with inspiring family stories.
  • Relax amid idyllic gardens, carefully planned to provide colour and interest all year round, enjoy woodland and lakeside walks, and let the kids let off steam in the adventure playground and walk the NEW Jungle Walkway.
  • Something for everyone, Picton’s changing programme of events and exhibitions throughout the year is an excuse to visit time and time again

We have a great line-up of events for 2013. More may be added during the year – do check our events page periodically for updated information.

But remember – there’s plenty to do at Picton Castle every day! Our 40 acres of woodland gardens are a treasure trove of wild plants thriving alongside showy exotics to delight gardeners.

There’s nearly 2 miles of paths, with strategically placed benches so you can take a brisk walk or a leisurely stroll and enjoy the birdsong and views. There are no ‘keep off the grass’ signs at Picton Castle so you can stray where you will, enjoying the wonders of Nature as you wish.

The children’s woodland trail is fun; all they have to do is find the clues, solve the riddles and win a mini prize! The real maze is a challenge for all the family and the adventure playground is brilliant fun.
