The Castle grounds are open all year round.
There is free admission to Castle ruins although, at times, some event entry prices may apply.
We are a self-funding Castle, so car parking fees apply at all times. Please pay at the machine or in the shop when open.
See our Events page for events and entry prices.
Dogs are welcome! All we ask is that your dog is always on a lead, and please clear up after them.
Please note that the viewing mound cannot be accessed by wheelchairs users and care must be taken on steps, especially in wet weather.
Group Tours/Guided Walks
Arrange a pre-booked individual or group guided tour or talks during the day or evening (daylight hours only).
We can accommodate groups of eight or more with lunch.
Schools and Education
Whittington Castle welcomes school groups for educational visits on Mondays and Tuesdays.
We offer activities linked to the National Curriculum and will always discuss your needs in advance. Visits generally last for four hours, usually from 10-2pm
Please phone our General Manager on 01691 662500 to talk to us about your requirements. Alternatively email firstname.lastname@example.org
