Welcome

Welcome to Lowther Castle & Gardens - we have just changed back to winter opening times with the clocks going back, now open every day from 10 am to 4pm (last entry to the Gardens 3pm).                                                                               

Accompanied children under 16 free, well behaved dogs on leads are welcome. We now have a limited number of tables in the cafe for the use of pet owners, to keep you warm.

The Cafe and Shop are open every day from 10 am to 4.00 pm, from the 26th October, situated in the stable courtyard, free access and parking.

The Trustees are looking to appoint a Head of Visitor Services. Details are listed under the 'Empoyment' tab at the bottom of the page, please apply directly to the Chairman, Bryan Gray.

We have 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 equates to one plant and we need thousands of plants for the parterre, just one of our projects for this 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.
