Group visits to Dunster Castle & Gardens

Visitors in the garden

Book today to visit an ancient castle transformed into a comfortable country home with dramatic vistas.

Dunster Castle has commanded this outstanding location atop the tor since the Middle Ages. It is a perfect site for a castle – visually impressive and easily defended. The castle, owned by only two families, has been transformed through the ages from fortress to family home.


It's essential that all groups book their visit. Please give us a ring on 01643 821314, email us on  and we offer group organisers a complementary visit to help plan your day.
