                                                  Please note that entry to the Castle is by Guided Tour only

During the winter months when the Castle is closed, you are still able to enjoy our wonderful gardens. There is an Honesty Box for donations which help us to maintain this glorious place. See below for Winter Opening.

Dogs Welcome! Dogs on leads are more than welcome to accompany visitors within the Gardens – with the 40 acres providing more than ample scope for them to get plenty of exercise! All we ask is for you to bring along a ‘poopy bag’ – or ask at our shop – and dispose of these responsibly. We do not advise that you leave your dog in your car.  Assistance dogs such as Guide Dogs, will be permitted in the Castle.

**Gardens maybe closed in high winds or adverse weather conditions to all visitors to ensure visitor safety.

Castle Tours take place during the main season opening dates at  12.00 p.m.  1.00 p.m &  2.00 pm ***

***Please note that castle tours may be restricted when wedding ceremonies or other functions take place in the Great Hall. Please phone 01437 751369 to confirm tour times.
