Cost: Everyday children's activities inside and outside the castle are included in the admission price; admission is free for NT members. (Special events may have an extra charge.)
Parking: Limited on-site parking for c.60 cars so why not come by boat (see link below), bus or by bike (see our How to Get here page)
Catering: Café serves sandwiches, hot and cold drinks, cake etc. but no meals. If you want to bring a picnic then we’ve got benches in great spots around the grounds.
Shopping: We've got a range of toys and gifts in our new shop (including great pocket money buys). A map guide to the castle and grounds costs £1.50.
Toilets: Toilets inside and in a newly refurbished outbuilding, including baby change facilities.
The grounds: Informal grounds, so kids are free to run off lots of energy; please supervise them to keep them safe; dogs are welcome on leads.
Baby buggies: Some buggy-friendly paths in the grounds; OK to use in ground floor rooms of castle.

New Peter Rabbit's Playroom!
Peter Rabbit and his friends from the brand-new CBeebies show have hopped into a new home at Wray Castle.
Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny and Lily Bobtail feature in the new animated series and young visitors to the castle can visit the new activity room to get involved in rabbity new adventures. Fans can dress up like Peter and his friends, watch episodes of the show or try their hand at (indoor) gardening in Mr McGregor’s garden.
This room builds on the special link the castle has with Peter's creator, Beatrix Potter, who holidayed here with her family when she was a girl. The new playroom is a collaboration between the National Trust, CBeebies, and the show’s creators, Silvergate Media.
