Sherborne Castle, New Road, Sherborne, Dorset DT9 5NR, UK 01935 812072 Ext2

Built by Sir Walter Raleigh in 1594 and the stately home of the Digby family since 1617, Sherborne Castle is a Historic House which reflects a glorious variety of decorative styles from over 400 years of English history. Come and experience the Castle’s rich interiors with splendid collections of art, furniture and porcelain. In the cellars: see Raleigh’s kitchen, with archive and fossil displays and relics from the civil war on show in the Museum.

The eighteenth century ‘Capability’ Brown landscape and gardens provide a peaceful and tranquil setting; with magnificent specimen trees, borders and sweeping lawns forming one of his finest Lake landscapes you will see. Delightful walks guide you round the 50-acre Lake, past Sir Walter Raleigh’s Seat to the Cascade, close by to the ruins of the medieval castle. Watch the abundant wildlife on the lake, feed the ducks, have a picnic or walk the dogs. Our Tea Room serves morning coffees, light lunches and delicious afternoon teas. The Gift Shop has a selection of gifts, souvenirs and our very own Sherborne Castle wines.

Also watch out on our website for special public events to enjoy throughout the open season.
