The castle opens 30 March. Individual and group tickets available. We will be closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays except for pre-booked groups of 20 or more. 


Visitors should get guidance and help from Kiosk or Front Door staff on arrival at the Castle who will direct them, if appropriate, to park closer to the Castle.

The tour of the Castle includes 3 floors and it is not possible to avoid stairs. Therefore, we offer FREE entry to blue-badge holders and one assistant as there is limited access due to the stairs and loose gravel around the exterior.

We have 2 wheelchairs available for visitor use on request.

We welcome assistance dogs in the Castle & Gardens, and also on the Estate.

Please view our full Accessibility Guide below and contact the Estate Office on 01499 302203 if you have any further questions.
