This is a great afternoon out. The house is well kept and full of history. For us though the gardens are what made the visit worthwhile. They are stunning. There are so many trees and beautiful flowers and shrubs in a great setting with hidden...More

I come most weeks with my 2 year old twins who love Sizergh. They particularly enjoy frog spotting, finding Charlie cat and watching the swans and cygnets. The walled vegetable garden is just like Mr McGregor's (Peter Rabbit fans!) and there are many paths to...More

Really worth taking the free guided tour of the garden first as this gives you a good history of the castle owners over the years. The house itself dates back to Tudor Times and gives a real feel of the past. Well worth a visit...More

The castle is OK but there are some aspects I dislike- 1) I resent being asked at every point whether I had thought of joining the NT - NO I DON'T WANT TO. I was approached in the car park before I had even put...More

Sizergh castle and gardens are beautiful. It is a fabulous castle to explore and the volunteers are friendly and welcoming to small children. The gardens are wonderful; particularly the water garden. The only down side (and there is nothing that can be done about it)...More
