Welcome to Lowther Castle & Gardens - open every day from 10 am to 5pm ( last entry to the Gardens 4pm). Dogs on leads welcome.

Lowther Castle Cafe and Shop are open every day from 10 am to 5.00 pm, situated in the stable courtyard with free access. £8 entrance to the gardens and castle ruins.

The daffodils are approaching full bloom, perfectly timed for Easter, in this sunshine they will be looking gorgeous and if it's not breezy on the Patte D'oie the scent is breathtaking.

Easter week from Good Friday the 18th, to Sunday 27th we will also have the Easter Egg Hunt around the gardens. Find where all the eggs are and claim your prize!

Choose an Annual Membership for your friends or family - offering them the chance to return to the gardens for an unlimited number of visits as the gardens evolve through the seasons; memberships run till 31st December but only three visits earn the full value - and as we allow children under 16 free entry and don't limit your family size, (and welcome the family dog too), we soon become very good value.There are big developments in store for the gardens this year so there will be a lot to see. Gift membership comes with a card and Lowther GIft Bag; see 'Becoming a member' for more details or contact us directly.

We have the new Life Membership at £750, or the over 60s rate of £500.

Memberships help fund our development projects, especially if you can gift aid them... one gift aid just about equates to one plant and bear in mind we need thousands of plants for the parterre, just one of our projects for next year. We can reclaim the basic rate tax, and if you are a higher rate tax payer you can reclaim the difference, (where the gift aid option applies)!

We constantly update our Facebook page with snippets of news and interesting images as things happen; and have now started a Gardener's Blog specifically for the garden minded reader.
