Winter days out

Throughout January and February there is something to do every day at Scotney Castle. Whether you want to explore our exhibition inside the house or put your boots in the car for a walk across our estate, every visit should end with a visit to our tearoom for coffee and cake. New Year, new you? We have lots of exciting volunteering opportunities that could tick off your new years resolution.

Sculpture at Scotney

In January 2018 we launched our new sculpture programme within the gardens. The area in the garden was originally home to a piece by Henry Moore and each new installation will sit in the same place using the castle as a perfect backdrop for the work.

The benefits of volunteering at Scotney Castle

Scotney Castle relies on the kind people who offer their time and skills to make sure all our visitors enjoy their day. From engaging with eager visitors as they visit our Victorian Mansion to spending a sunny summer’s day in our Walled Garden, we have a wide range of volunteering opportunities to suit you.

Ten years have passed since the doors to the mansion opened at Scotney Castle. A new exhibition provides a chance to reflect, and look ahead at what's to come.
