The Castle, but now virtual
01 January 2021 - 01 April 2023
We have been throwing open our gates to you for nearly a century and have welcomed you in to be the star witness to the countless memories that are contained within the walls of the castle. But now, for the first time in our history, the castle will be exchanging its annual hibernation for a revitalising beauty sleep, so that it can wake up in glorious splendour in 2023. Inside, a major restoration campaign is under way which will take 2.5 years to complete.
Are you, too, nostalgic for the castle atmosphere? Are your memories beginning to fade? Have you never had the delight of wandering through the castle? Don’t worry, just before the castle was transformed into a building site, we produced a 360° tour for you.
