  • A beautiful place to look around. We had a very knowledgable tour guide called Pat who was very friendly, informative and accommodating. Some of the rooms in the castle are stunning in proportion or decoration, and the octagonal drawing room in particular was jaw-droppingly impressive. Outstanding views of the countryside and nice little walled gardens.
  • A lot to do here, and very well thought out. Outside, the gardens are lovely, and not too be missed. The tea room is also well with a visit, with a good collection of toasted sandwiches. The interior of the castle is incredible - wish they allowed photography... Kids activities are laid on throughout the year: we had an Easter egg hunt, face painting and garden games. Lastly, the grounds are very picturesque and there are deer. Go, but wrap up warm, even in Spring.
  • Fantastic to attraction to visit. The Easter Egg hunt was very well thought out and the children loved it. The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly.
  • It's an OK place, beautiful countryside and fantastic walled gardens. Helpful and friendly staff.
  • stuck for somewhere to go then get yourself to raby castle you'll not be disappointed
