Hylton Castle is currently closed to visitors due to the construction works taking place. The castle and some of the grounds are fenced off to keep the site safe and groundworks are currently underway. By the New Year we expect the castle to be gradually disappearing behind scaffolding. There is access to St Catherine's Chapel within the grounds, from 10am-4pm daily. The castle is due to reopen in 2018.
Hylton Castle is currently in the guardianship of English Heritage. Cars can be parked adjacent to the site, next to the Hylton Dene play area.
Hylton Dene is a much loved green open space around the castle and a great place to escape the buzz of the traffic.
Although the castle is currently closed we are working with local partners to offer a range of activities, events and volunteering opportunities in Hylton Dene and at local community venues. If you'd like to get involved, please get in touch.
