Raby Castle is well worth a visit. It has been extensively remodeled inside over various generations so has some surprisingly fancy rooms- fancier than Floors Castle even, though the gardens at Floors are bigger. The interior coach room is unique and impressive. The drawing room...More

Good coffee shop which sensibly opens early. No charge for main parkland and play area. Reasonable entrance to gardens and castle. Option of guided tours, but very helpful guides in each room. Worth the money just to see the kitchens.
