Hard Hat Tours

Tue, 22/05/2018 - 09:00 to 15:30

Get up close to Hylton Castle with a hard hat tour including a chance to climb the exterior scaffolding and get up close to the top turrets and the carved heraldry.    

Hylton Castle is currently undergoing major construction work, transforming the 14th century castle to create a community-based, heritage-led venue for local people and visitors.  Join us for a behind the scenes site tour including access to the upper levels of the exterior scaffolding to see the work in progress and find out how the historic fabric is being cared for alongside the installation of 21st century design and materials to give the building a new lease of life.  

Tours last around 90 minutes including a short safety briefing.  Tours begin at 9.15am, 12noon and 2pm - please prebook your place and meet at the Hylton Dene play area car park on Craigavon Road, Sunderland SR5 3PA
