Wray Castle

This outstanding mock-Gothic castle on the shores of Lake Windermere boasts informal grounds, towers, turrets and even the Peter Rabbit Adventure. It is not like any other traditional National Trust house, most of the rooms are empty and you are free to roam around and explore behind the scenes and picnic on the lawns. It is truly a magical attraction where the whole family can join in the fun. Wray castle is a must-visit spot, irrespective of weather.

Refer to the Brockhole events calendar for information on many exciting events taking place all year around. We advise you to arrive by ferry or on foot or bike as the car park is expensive.
