Welcome to Raby Castle
A visit to the magnificent Raby Castle provides a fascinating insight into more than 600 years of history. Raby was built by the mighty Nevills in the 14th century and is one of the finest and best-preserved medieval castles in North East England. Since 1626 it has been home to the family of the current owner, Lord Barnard. He is proud of its heritage and passionate about sharing his family’s history and collections of art and artefacts with visitors. Raby Castle is set in 200 acres of undulating parkland in the heart of the beautiful Durham Dales in County Durham. The estate includes our newly refurbished Tearooms, Gift Shop and woodland play area. There is no entrance fee to visit these areas, so why not stop by for a coffee or a spot of lunch, perhaps on the way to the spectacular High Force which is also part of the extensive Raby Estate.
Tearooms, Gift Shop and Christmas Shop, Woodland Play Area – Open daily 10am – 5pm. No ticket required.
A new admission type for this Winter is the Castle Terrace and Park ticket. Available every day except Monday from 10:30 to 3:30pm. The Castle Terrace and Park tickets can be purchased in the Gift Shop.
The Castle and the Gardens are now closed for winter.
Raby Castle also runs a varied and exciting programme of special events and activities for all ages and interests. Why not join us this Winter for the Christmas Market, Craft Workshops, Fireside Stories with Father Christmas or for Festive Afternoon Tea in the Castle. Don’t forget you can also buy your Raby grown Christmas tree from the Coach Yard, throughout December.
