Details

Eastnor Castle is a fairytale Georgian castle, dramatically situated in the foothills of the Malverns. Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and surrounded by a deer park, a mature arboretum and lake, Eastnor Castle boasts beautifully restored interiors containing medieval armour, tapestries and Italian furniture and fine art.

Eastnor Castle is still the family home of the descendants of the builder, Lord Somers, and feels lived in and warm. Visitors are able to view some of the bedrooms and bathrooms as well as the impressive state rooms and Great Hall, which is nearly 60 foot high. There are walks through the grounds and around the lake amongst redwoods and cedars. The 19th century ice house has been restored and is also open to visitors.

Alongside an event/activity included in your entrance price each day we are open, Eastnor Castle also offers the following attractions:
- Kitchen Tea Room
- Ice Cream Parlour
- Knight's Maze
- Junior Obstacle Course
- Adventure Playground with Mini Zip-Wire and Tree-Top-Walkway
- Woodland Play Area
- Rope-Swing Route
- Tree Trail
- Tree Hunters' Trek
- Children's Fun Booklets
- Mini Land Rovers (small additional charge applies)

Dogs are welcome in the house and grounds.

The castle can also be hired for weddings, business and private events on an exclusive hire basis.
