I have heard mixed reviews about Floors, but I feel it is well worth the visit. We took this audio tour, for a few extra pounds it's well worth it, it was very informative and easy to use. The castle is spectacular and the grounds...More

Had a nice lunch at Floors Castle Terrace Cafe. Good service - (thank you Kate!) with a nice relaxed atmosphere. Had toasties with tea. All lovely and reasonably priced. Love the spotty teapots and bought some of their delicious salmon fishcakes for our tea!

A lot to see, guide in each room who really are experts. More French antiques that in the whole of the Loire valley! Lovely estate that is clearly loved and well managed by the family. Immaculate toilet facilities. Very reasonable priced family ticket.

Hi, I live locally (td5) and I have always picked up a pass to walk in floors grounds and go to the play park at the garden centre. Last year i accessed the park numerous times. I have found out, that this year, there is going to be a charge per adult of £6.50. Is this correct? Jx
