Opening Times

The gardens are open daily during the Spring – Autumn season from 10.30am until 5pm, with last entry at 4pm. We recommend you allocate at least two hours to explore the gardens as there is a lot to see. There are also picturesque river walks, which take 30-60 minutes to complete, and offer wonderful views of the Castle and countryside. To read more about the gardens, visit our Gardens page.

Visiting the Castle gives you the chance to see some of the historic rooms and learn about the history of the estate. An overview of the Castle’s history can be found on our Castle page.
