The Castle of Mey was the property of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother from 1952 until 1996, when Her Majesty generously gifted it with an endowment to the Trust.
The castle itself is fascinatingly developed and decorated, with informative guides and historical markers leading the way.
The relaxed and welcoming atmosphere gives customers the opportunity to see animals well cared for in a happy environment. Visitors can have hands-on, supervised contact with some of the animals, providing an enjoyable and educational visit.
The visitor centre, tearoom, shop, grounds and animal centre are open every day during the normal season from 10am until 5pm.
