Castle Tour

Castle Tour

Our guided tours give visitors the chance to see the 21st century renovation works inside the shell of the 14th century monument, learning about the history of the families who lived here and the significant architectural highlights. For those able to ascend our original stone spiral staircase, you will be met by impressive landscapes seen from our viewing gallery on the roof. Tours last approximately one hour and we have free on-site parking. 

£5 per adult
£3 per child

Due to Hylton Castle being a working venue which is in use most of the week, visits must be pre-booked. Tours are typically held on Wednesdays or Saturdays unless extra days are added. 

Please note: due to ongoing repair works, the outside roof is currently out of bounds. Apologies for any inconvenience.
