Lowther Castle & Gardens – A Celebration in Gold continues to the 6 May 2024

A stunning Lake District visitor attraction

Of the many treasures waiting to be discovered in the English Lake District, Lowther Castle is a particular gem.  Built at the turn of the 19th century on the site of 2 previous houses, the castle was a grand affair boasting a room for every day of the year.  Its gardens were the envy of the north.

But in 1957 the castle was demolished. Just the façade and outer walls remained standing and for over half a century, the place was empty – home only to chickens, pigs and the odd bat. The gardens were lost to wilderness.

Today Lowther Castle is one of the most intriguing visitor attractions in the country. Dramatic ruinsgardens within gardens, an adventure playground to rival the best in the land. We look forward to welcoming you.
