Organizer

Grimsthorpe Castle Park and GardensThe Castle is the centrepiece of the Estate. It is a large quadrangular house with a central courtyard. Each section has a different appearance, reflecting the different architectural styles that have been employed here since building began in the 13th century. Once inside you can see the collection of paintings, furniture, tapestries and objects d’art that fill the state rooms. Thrones and furnishings from the House of Lords are some of the more unusual items on view.Contact: Ray Biggs, Grimsthorpe Estate Office, Bourne, PE10 0LY.
