On Mondays, Tuesdays & Wednesday throughout May, June and September we operate timed guided tours of the Castle. Our knowledgeable and friendly house guides will take you on a tour of the Castle to discover its fascinating history and beautiful interiors.
Guided tours last approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. There is no need to book in advance, our admissions staff will book you onto a tour when you arrive. In general the first tour of the day begins shortly after the Castle opens at 1pm, and then take place every half an hour throughout the afternoon. Please note the last tour of the day will be at 15.20, after which there will be no further admissions to the castle.
If you prefer to stroll around and take in the castle at your own pace, then we operate a free-flow system on Sundays, bank holidays and everyday throughout July and August*, due to increases in the number of visitors in the castle at these times.
During free-flow days, our knowledgeable guides will be in each room of the house to offer you guidance should you need it, feel free to ask them anything you desire to know! There are also informative room notes to help you in every room. There will be no guided tours in operation during these times.
Please call 01833 660202 in advance if you are unsure.
Please note dogs are not allowed in the Castle and Gardens except guide/assistance dogs. Well behaved dogs are welcome in the Deer Park on leads only.
