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.
