Doors Closed on a Successful Season

Doors Closed on a Successful Season

It's been a thoroughly successful season since we opened this year on the 2nd May with increased visitors and group parties having days out at the castle.

We enjoyed two theatre productions from Chapterhouse Theatre Company and our Civil War Re-enactment Weekend with The Sealed Knot. It was also a pleasure to host the Borders Historic Motoring Extravaganza again and it has already been confirmed that this will be back next year on Sunday June 3.

We would love to see photos from your visit in 2017 and there is still time to leave us a review on Tripadvisor, Facebook or Google to tell us about your day out.

Pre-booked group tours and private events are still available over the winter so please get in touch if you would like to book in a party of people or hire any of our spaces. Just call us on +44 (0)1578 722430 or email us at

We will be open for the 2018 season on Monday April 30 right through until Sunday September 30 every Sunday-Thursday, 10am-4pm. We will be developing our calendar of special events over the next few months and already have some exciting days planned for 2018.

Please join our mailing list to be kept up to date with all that is going on while the castle is closed or follow us on Facebook or Twitter for the latest news.
