Drewsteignton, Exeter, Devon, EX6 6PB

Explore the 'last castle to be built in England' as the project to save it from certain ruin is now underway. We’ll be staying open during the conservation work, allowing you a once in a lifetime opportunity to go behind the scenes. Wander around our exhibitions which tell the stories of Castle Drogo and explore new rooms, never before open to the public. You’ll also be able to see the building work in progress from the viewing platform (restrictions apply). Stretch your legs in the gardens and follow the winding paths into the Teign Valley. Recharge at the café with a traditional Devon cream tea or tuck into a slice of cake. At our gift shop and plant centre you can pick up a wide range of plants, books, cards and locally produced food. Families can have a go at finding and completing the 10 challenges hidden around the castle.

This event took place in September 2014 and the entry is now archived.
