Educational Visits

We welcome educational visits from pupils of primary and secondary schools and above.

Visits must be pre-booked and are available throughout the year. Please call the Admin office to check availability and discuss your requirements on 01833 660202.

With historic reference from the Middle Ages through to the Victorian Era Raby Castle is ideal for a school visit.

Experienced guides tailor each individual visit specifically to the needs of your group, taking into account age and National Curriculum requirements. Guides enhance the motivational tours by involving a degree of storytelling.

A Castle tour takes approximately 60 minutes.

After the Castle tour there is much more to see and experience, such as the Horse-Drawn Carriage Collection, Deer Park and Walled Garden.

There is a picnic area in the gardens or the Servants Hall in the Castle is available for packed lunches in case of bad weather.

Children are welcome in the Gift Shop in small, supervised groups or Goody bags can be arranged in advance for each child, according to your budget.

The Woodland Adventure Play Area is also available for children ages 6+ to use, and is a good way to fit in some exercise before returning to school.

  • £5.00 per head (inc. adults)
  • One adult goes free for every 10 children
  • A minimum number of 20 children, or minimum charge applies
