Visitor Information

Covid-19 information:


We want to keep our visitors and our staff safe, and have installed measures on site to assist with this. In order that we can follow government guidelines and help to prevent the further spread of Covid-19, please follow all guidelines on site and socially distance where possible.


We ask that our visitors wear a face covering when inside the Castle and Gift Shop, as well as sanitising their hands upon entry, and our staff will continue to do the same.


This is to protect our staff, visitors, and the family in residence.


It is no longer a requirement to Track and Trace, however we do encourage visitors to do so.


Thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate the pandemic together.

Grimsthorpe Castle, Park & Gardens makes for a perfect day out. Whether you’re walking the dog, looking for history, out with the kids or meeting with a friend to shop, eat and explore, Grimsthorpe has it all!


Grimsthorpe is known for its wonderful and varied walks and cycle trails. Take a short but pleasant stroll through the Woodland Walk, meander through the gorgeous gardens, or bring your bike and cycle to the lake and beyond. Pick up a walking map from the Ticket Hut on your way in to see all the choices.


Our Gift Shop is open every open day from 11am – 5pm, filled with locally produced products, unique gifts, fascinating books and games and toys for children. Be sure to visit our new second-hand book section if you’re looking for your next gripping read!


Children love the Adventure Playground, located in the Oaks Wood. Plenty for little ones to explore and play, there are slides, swings, trim trails and even a zip wire! We also have a shelter for picnicking, and portaloos nearby.


There are lots of places to picnic on a sunny day. Find a secluded spot or join others on the manicured lawns on the North Avenue.


And remember that if you plan to visit us more than twice during the season a season ticket is very good value for money.
