Wray Castle image

Mock-Gothic castle sitting on the shores of Lake Windermere with turrets, towers and informal grounds.

Wray Castle came to us without its contents so you will not see a 'typical' National Trust house full of paintings, furniture and antiques with an accompanying owner-family history through the ages. What you will see is a 'tired' but fascinating building with hints of its ‘grand’ past and plenty of signs of its varied history. Make sure you join one of our free tours to get its full life story.

If you've children to entertain you'll be pleased to know the rooms may be empty of grand possessions but full of kids having fun in our dressing up and castle-building spaces, perfect for a wet day in the Lakes! There’s plenty to do outdoors too, like rope swing, den-building and trails, in our family-friendly gardens and grounds.

Please note our car park is small and often full by 11am. Avoid disappointment by arriving by boat or bus. There are regular boats direct from Ambleside or a bus service running from Ferry Nab via Hill Top and Hawkshead.
