Lowther Castle wants groups

Extravagant 19th-century home was left in ruin by the 1960s

Lowther Castle is launching itself into the group travel market with special group offers and a series of garden talks.

For groups of 10+, Lowther offers a discount on garden entry and free entry for the organiser/coach driver. In its premium package, guests can enjoy hot drinks and biscuits upon arrival, an introductory historical talk, and café voucher for the driver.

Head Gardener Martin Ogle has announced a series of monthly garden talks starting this month. They last approximately 90 minutes and feature a different theme depending on the season.

Lowther Castle was built at the turn of the 19th century and in its heyday, played host to kings and queens. It was partly demolished and left in ruin in the 1950s, and today the planted ruins and restored gardens are a popular attraction in Penrith.
