Child colouring in at Castle Drogo

Meet the builders’ day  

Saturday 3 June, 11am-4pm
As the building project to save Castle Drogo is now over halfway we are offering the very special opportunity to meet the Castle Drogo builders. There will be demonstrations and activities to have a go at such as, pointing and window making for children, as very special behind the scenes tours onto the roof (Roof tours: places are limited and first come first serve, restrictions apply, £5pp). Normal admission applies.

As well as these events children can pick up a free spotter sheet from visitor reception and try and spot butterflies and animals that live here, or take part in the castle trail around the house.
