Working at Hampton Court Castle

Hampton Court Castle is a 15th century castle based between Leominster and Hereford. We hold fabulous weddings and private functions inside the castle, and operate as a seasonal visitor attraction. Visitors come to see our formal gardens, take castle tours, relax in the amazing surroundings and visit our Gift Shop and Orangery Cafe. We are also in the process of creating a holiday cottage complex. Having been delayed by the pandemic, we are looking forward to the first units going live later this year.

Hampton Court Castle Ltd is a new, mission-led company that manages the whole Hampton Court Castle estate. You can read more about us by following the Company Purpose & Values link in the footer on our website.
