Join us this festive season for a magical Christmas at Raby.


Raby Castle is surrounded by 200 acres of lush green parkland, where herds of red and fallow deer live wild. Explore the park and amble around the ponds to spot plenty of wildlife that inhabit this remarkable setting. We have 5 acres of traditional 18th century ornamental Walled Gardens which include fabulous yew hedges, a fig house, rose garden, trees, plants and ornamental features. If you’re feeling energetic, we also have a Woodland Adventure Playground for children and offer bike hire to explore the grounds and experience the spectacular views.
