Welcome to Whittington Castle

Welcome to Whittington Castle near Oswestry in Shropshire England. The strikingly picturesque and romantic ruins are steeped in much history, tales of bitter border warfare, romance and legend.

A small rural community in North Shropshire, England has acquired a 99 year lease to manage the Castle that sits in the centre of its village. The Trust is delighted to announce that a £1.5m project to repair and restore Whittington Castle has just been completed with the assistance of a £950k grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

We believe ours is the only Castle in the UK which is owned and run by a local community.

The existing Castle is set in about 12 acres of ground and is the remains of a Norman home. 

We welcome visitors all year and hope that you enjoy your visit to our Castle.
