Dean Castle and Country Park

Dean Castle G1.jpgThe Country Park boasts beautiful woodland walks, adventure playground, pets corner, visitor centre, tearoom, shop and a fantastic 14th century castle housing world class collections including historic weapons, armour and musical instruments.

Explore the park using scenic paths and trails - each season brings with it ever changing plants and wildlife that you might spy along the way.

Visit our urban farm area and meet some of our new arrivals - Bruno, Lucy and Murron the kune kune pigs, our hilarious Indian runner ducks and let's not forget old favourites - Scott the Clydesdale and Timmy and Pip the donkeys. Look out for our new fallow deer herd and Highland cattle too.

Take a free tour of the castle and find out what it's like to wear some real armour or have a go at playing some replica musical instruments.

Take part in some fun environmental education with the resident Ranger Service who will answer any natural history related questions that you may have.

From classic car rallies to minibeast hunts, Dean Castle Country Park offers an extensive and varied events programme throughout the year.

Open All Year:
Winter: Wed -Sun 10am - 4pm.
Summer Mon-Sun, 11am - 5pm
