Besides being a fascinating visitor attraction, the Castle fulfils other roles as an exclusive-use wedding venue, corporate and team building venue, as well as a venue for product launches and location filming.

Spent the afternoon here on a nice day. Quite expensive to visit the Castle itself but worth it as there is plenty to see and some fun for children too. We had lunch in the tea room courtyard which was fine on a warm day and a walk around the lake aswell. A good way to spend a day or an afternoon. Apparently Eastnor was featured on Antiques Roadshow and Countryfile and also in quite a few films for TV.

We visited Eastnor Castle and Arboretum last Sunday as it will close its gates for the season at the and for September for opening for shooting season ( as I've been informed)
It's an unforgettable place, both the castle, the garden!
The staff are kind, helpful, have stories about paintings, rooms.
The owners let dogs in the castle on lead so definitely a dog friendly place!
As for children, it's a Little Paradise, Maize, playgrounds for them, won't be bored, for sure.
If you keep your tickets, from your previous visit ( either Berkeley or Sudeley Castles or Spetchley Park, you can have 50% off admission fee one of Stately Explorers partner properties)
Don't miss any of them as they're real gem on their own!

What a place this is a stately home you can take your dog too. Yes dogs are allowed into the home (as long as well behaved) .
More a Victorian mock castle thats still a family home that has opened to the public .
Really lovely surroundings set in the middle of a deer park (Also does weddings).
Nice cafe , reasonable entrance fee .
House itself is packed full of the usual sort of stuff that makes a grand victoria home , stuffed animals hunting impliments etc
Staff are superb ended up laughing and joking from a couple of thier funny stories.
Looking forward to going again .

Thank Peter e

First time visit to the fireworks championships, believe it has been going for a few years, great displays, food and fun fair.

The organisers could do with a thinking about the seating area and the carpark, the seating area was a free for all, so no walkways are in place,
Carpark could do with some sort of row or area marking so you have a idea where you car is parked, not much fun in total darkness

The Firework competitions were totally amazing. Carpark horrendous over hour to get out- needs improvements.
This ruined what was a good night as had small children and did not get home until 1am
Ive been to other events at Eastnor where parking has two entrances...I cant understand why with such a large volume of traffic its single file out??
