Welcome to Lowther Castle & Gardens - open every day from 10 am to 5.00 pm
There are no keep off the grass rules here. Lowther is a magical place for discovery and letting imaginations loose. Magnificent Castle and Gardens that have been hidden away for 70 years.
Well behaved dogs on leads welcome.
The sandstone remains of a romantic Castle. 130 acres of once grand gardens undergoing loving restoration. Woods to wander. Wildlife to keep an eye open for. Incredible views of Lakeland fells. Lowther is unique, slightly eccentric and special. We want you to explore, follow your nose, take away your own memories. Nobody ever gets lost because the magnificent Castle turrets are visible from everywhere.
Lowther has a chequered past that came to an end in 1937 when it was abandoned and closed down. Ten years ago it very nearly fell down... now it's safe. But we shan't be rewinding the clock, restoring to what might have been. Lowther is made of many layers and that's the challenge. Finding new layers for Lowther to reinvent its future. The New Lowther Gallery is proogressing well - more news regarding opening due in the next few weeks.
