Hylton Castle is currently closed to visitors due to the construction work taking place, which is due to complete in 2019. The castle and some of the grounds are fenced off to keep the site safe. There is access to St Catherine's Chapel within the grounds, from 10am-4pm daily.
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, Hylton Castle Trust are working with local partners to offer a range of activities, events, and learning sessions in Hylton Dene and at local community venues. If you are interested in supporting the Hylton Castle Project as a volunteer, please get in touch - all welcome to join the friendly volunteer group, with training and support on offer.
