Attraction Information

  • Castles and Palaces icon Castles and Palaces
  • Tourist Attractions icon Tourist Attractions

Suitable for ages: Babies and Toddlers (0-3), Young Children (4-8) and Older Children (9-12)

Venue type: Indoor, Outdoor

At Lancaster Castle families are welcome but the use of the building by the court does mean that all access is by guided tour, which might be too long for very young children to remain quiet.

Children under 5 are free, but parents need to use discretion about whether the tour is suitable for them. They do offer tours specifically for children on Wednesdays at 14:00 throughout the summer holiday and during local half terms.

There are family-friendly workshops at Christmas, and this year for the first time at Halloween.
