  • The grounds were stunning, we went on a damp day, which brought out the smells of the plants and shrubs. They have a large red, and fallow dears roaming around the grounds. The coach house and tack ro...  more »

  • A beautiful castle with extensive grounds. Take the free 1 hour guided tour of the castle to make the most of it. Lovely parkland to walk around with very large herd of deer to observe. Entry fee very reasonably priced at £10 per adult. Make sure you check out the carriage collection just along from the tea rooms.
  • Raby castle classic car shows are an excellent day out we had a brilliant day. The only fault I found was they charge far too much for the food. I feel sorry for people who don't have a lot of money as it is really expensive especially if there are a few of you visiting. Next time we will take our own food with us
  • 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.
  • I loved seeing the deer park....amazing although we did visit while a car show was on so the deer were pretty far away the castle itself is stunning and walking round the outside is recommended as it's a perfect photo opportunity
  • Beautiful castle with a beautiful garden. We had a great time here. Lots of deers to see :D
