Friends can enjoy access to the Castle’s three gardens, woodlands, nature trails, shops and Courtyard Restaurant. Walking in the woods, strolling around the beautiful gardens, viewing the contemporary sculptures and relaxing with a refreshment in the licensed café makes an ideal day out and the membership allows as many repeat visits as you can manage!
