Inline 01 Generic Castle Optimised

Mock-Gothic castle sitting on the shores of Lake Windermere with turrets, towers and informal grounds

Situated on the quiet western shore of Windermere, this Victorian neo-gothic and scenic grounds are managed by The National Trust. Not your typical castle, the building is free of traditional furnishings and has fun activities such as castle-building and dressing-up spaces. With other great family attractions like rope swings, gardens and scenic views plus a fascinating free castle tour, it's definitely worth a visit.

Inline 02 Green Cruise Optimised

Get there on the Green Cruise

(Ambleside > Wray Castle > Brockhole > Ambleside)

The easiest way to reach Wray Castle is by boat with 14 boats arriving and departing daily during peak season. Wray Castle Pier is only 15 minutes away from Ambleside (Watehead) Pier, so why not ditch the car and enjoy a cruise on Windermere?

Wray Castle Pier is a 10 minute walk up a gravel track to the castle and grounds.

Combine your castle visit with a 4-mile walk down the quiet lakeshore to Claife Viewing Station.

Our Walkers Ticket combines three lake cruises and a walk to create a circular route of Windermere. The route passes through the grounds of both National Trust Wray Castle and Claife Viewing Station, so you can visit both on foot and on boat.
