Raby Castle

A visit to the magnificent Raby Castle provides a fascinating insight into more than 600 years of history.

Raby Castle

Raby was built by the mighty Nevills in the 14th century and is one of the finest and best-preserved medieval castles in North East England, its history rolling back almost a thousand years.

Since 1626 it has been home to the family of the current owner, Lord Barnard. He is proud of its heritage and passionate about sharing his family’s history and collections of art and artefacts with visitors.Raby Castle is set in 200 acres of undulating parkland in the heart of the beautiful Durham Dales in County Durham. The estate includes our newly refurbished Tearooms, Gift Shop and woodland play area. There is no entrance fee to visit these areas, so why not stop by for a coffee or a spot of lunch, perhaps on the way to the spectacular High Force which is also part of the extensive Raby Estate.

Park and Gardens (ticket required) – Daily 9am – 4.30pm.
