For our Younger Visitors.
We have masses of big open spaces for children to run around in and enjoy themselves. You are free to bring games to play but please refrain from playing ball games in the formal part of the garden. In the grounds there is a quiz featuring Wentworth the Gallant Guardian of Rockingham Castle. His hopeless servant has lost his gold, please help him to find it. The quiz will be given to you on arrival. Inside the Castle there is an Eye Spy booklet to help children with observation, learn about the Castle and, most importantly, have fun.
Due to the delicate nature of the contents in the Castle and the narrow passageways, we regret we are unable to allow pushchairs inside of the Castle.
Outside tours take place daily on open days at 12.30pm, 1.30pm & 2.30pm. These tours are complimentary, last approximately 45 minutes and cover the development of the Castle through the ages. Please meet in the Courtyard beside the ‘tours’ board.
Dogs are most welcome so long as they are kept under control and on a lead. With the exception of guide and assistance dogs we do not allow dogs in the Castle.
