Raby Castle - Main Leaflet 2017

View the days out leaflet for Raby Castle - Main Leaflet 2017

Raby is without doubt one of the most impressive intact castles in England. Situated in the foothills of the Durham Dales, it was built in the 14th century by the powerful Nevill family. Throughout its long history, it was the home of Cicely Nevill, Rose of Raby, mother of Kings Edward IV and Richard III, scene of the plotting of the Rising of the North and a Parliamentary stronghold during the Civil War. Since 1626 to the present day it has been the seat of Lord & Lady Barnard and the Vane family.

Along with exploring the picturesque gardens and parkland with resident Red and Fallow deer, a visit is incomplete without a tour inside the castle itself. Raby houses a fabulous art collection and sumptuous interiors. Treasures include an important collection of Meissen porcelain, tapestries, furniture, furnishings and paintings.

The Castle’s knowledgeable and friendly guides help bring history to life with guided tours on weekdays, or explore the castle at your own pace on weekends and during School holidays.
