We apologise for any inconvenience but we are unable to operate without electricity and the power cut is to enable Northern Power Grid to carry out essential maintenance to avoid any unplanned power cuts in future.

Group visits

Larger groups might like to explore the extensive surviving rooms by themselves, or have a private tour by one of the enthusiastic and expert guides, focussing on Mary, Queen of Scots’ imprisonment or the Civil War, for example. For those seeking a more luxurious and less energetic visit, we can provide a delicious three course lunch in the Great Chamber, with a log fire blazing and exclusive use of this magnificent room. (Minimum group size 30 people)

Illustrated Talks and Lunches

We are delighted to be able to offer a range of fascinating, illustrated talks followed by an exclusive lunch in front of a roaring fire in The Great Chamber. Subjects include The Border Rievers, Mary, Queen of Scots and Medieval Hunting. (minimum group size 30 people)
Please contact the Castle for more information and to discuss the available options.

Guided Tours

Your group will have the opportunity to take a private guided tour of the castle with one of our experienced guides. Tours can be catered to suit your area of interest with topics including Mary Queen of Scots, Medieval Life and the Civil War. Tours are available for groups of 15 or more at £2.00 per person (plus admission charge) and last for approximately an hour and a quarter.

Guide Books

For group members preferring to take their own tour of the castle we offer a 50% discount on our Guide Books to enhance your visit. Guide books are available for £1.50 each and both provide much greater insight to the Castles’ fascinating past.
