Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update – 18.05.2020

In light of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, our priority is to protect the health of employees & visitors. Due to the guidance to reduce social contact we have made the difficult decision to postpone opening the Castle, Shop & Tea Room (which was scheduled for 12 April) until further notice.  Following the government guidance issued the week commencing the 11th May, the Castle, gardens and grounds remain closed to visitors.  The current guidance states that ‘private or ticketed attractions’ must remain closed.

We have sadly had to make the decision to cancel or postpone a number of other events. For the latest updates, please keep an eye on our Events Page –

The decision to cancel events and postpone the Castle opening has not been made lightly but we feel this is the best way to protect our staff and visitors.

We very much appreciate your continued support during this period. Please keep an eye on our website for further updates.
