Step into spring at Croft Castle
Discover something new in the castle, spot the spring flowers, go wild in our natural play area and treat yourself in our tea-room and shop.
Discover something new indoors as we step back in time to the 1950's. The National Trust bought Croft Castle exactly sixty years ago, in 1957. Find out how the Croft family fought to save the castle and estate in the Library and dress up, play games and flick through 1950's magazines in the family room.
Keep an eye out for Matthew Wood's exhibition on your next visit. Croft has been the inspiration for a series of paintings which are on display in the Upper Gallery from 3 June to 14 July. All his paintings are created in one sitting and evoke the unique atmosphere of Croft. Check out our what's on listings for more information.
Outdoors at Croft, springtime flowers are creating a sea of colour throughout the gardens. Pop on your walking boots and explore our historic parkland; try your hand at bird watching in our Fishpool Valley bird-hide and go wild in our natural play area.
Have a springtime adventure and tick off some of your '50 things' while you're at it; climb a tree, find some frog spawn, play pooh sticks, go bug hunting and run around in the rain if the sun isn't shining.
Don't miss our new retail ranges in the shop this spring and tuck into a freshly made lunch or afternoon tea in the Carpenters tea-room. Ask about our take-away options which you can enjoy while you stroll around the gardens or on a walk through the parkland.
