Explore the ‘last castle to be built in England’ as our massive project to save it from certain ruin is now well underway. We’re staying open during the conservation work, allowing you a rare opportunity to go behind the scenes.

Wander around our exhibitions which tell the stories of Castle Drogo and explore rooms never before open to the public before the project. You’ll also be able to see the building work in progress and get closer than ever before to our precious treasures.

Stretch your legs in the gardens, perfect for a picnic. There’s plenty to see from the herbaceous borders to the quaint Bunty House (Wendy House) complete with its own miniature garden.

Below the castle you can follow the winding paths into the sheltered Teign Valley. Explore this ancient gorge, teeming with wildlife as you follow the trails along the roaring river.

Recharge at the café with a traditional Devon cream tea or tuck into a slice of cake. At our gift shop and plant centre you can pick up a wide range of plants, books, cards and locally produced food.
