Visiting Wray Castle as a group

Tour leader Ross points out some unusual tree species in the grounds of Wray Castle

Wray Castle really does have something for everyone and whether your group is interested in history, a long walk in the grounds or a school trip looking for something a bit different, we can cater for you all.

Top tips for groups: 

  • Arriving at the castle by boat from Waterhead is the perfect way to start your visit and means you can enjoy classic Lakes scenery from the deck instead of travelling by car or minibus

  • We cannot accept coaches, minibuses only please

  • We can’t guarantee bookings during the school holidays 

School groups 

Wray Castle is the perfect venue for any school or group wishing to explore a fascinating building. With interactive activities in many of our rooms such as build your own castle from giant foam blocks, dress up as a Knight or Princess or play in Peter Rabbit’s Adventure, there really are no limits to where your imagination can take you.
