Raby Castle in County Durham has reopened its Park and Gardens to visitors as it responds to the government’s easing of lockdown restrictions. The Deer Park and historic Walled Gardens are now open daily from 10am to 4pm, with take-away refreshments available for visitors to enjoy.
Claire Jones, Head of Leisure and Tourism at Raby Castle said: “We have taken a very careful, phased approach to reopening our facilities, and are delighted to welcome visitors back to our magnificent outdoor spaces.
“Our priority is the safety of our staff and visitors, and we have introduced a number of measures across the site to support social distancing to keep everyone safe. We’ve introduced online ticketing for all areas, so visitors can now book day tickets and annual passes easily on our website and watch our video guide to see what’s open.
“We want visitors to feel confident about visiting Raby, and sharing information about the precautions we have taken, so that people know what to expect before they arrive, has been incredibly important.
“Feedback from visitors about how we have reopened, and the information we have shared has been incredibly positive, and it is lovely to see people enjoying Raby Castle’s open spaces and beautiful views once again. We are looking forward to opening more facilities as soon as it is safe to do so, and are working on exciting plans to help people experience our spaces in new and engaging ways.”Tickets and annual passes can be booked online at www.raby.co.uk/raby-castle
