    What a great castle, what ever the weather. I pass the place several times a week & never ceases to amaze me. It so nice to see large herds of deer roaming in it's vast grounds. Often seen is both long horned cattle & red shaggy highland cattle. Not seen from the road but in the picture is a large lake/moat.
    It's not regularly open so check before visiting. At Xmas they have a Market with Santa & you are able to buy Xmas trees from the Raby estate.
    Other events are held here such as vintage car shows & orchid shows.
    Well worth a visit even just to see it's majesty from the outside.

    Wonderful beautiful castle and grounds.  The gardens are amazing and wonderful to spend time walking around. The deer are abundant and come quite close to you.

    We had a stroller and were able to maneuver most areas without trouble with the exception of the second floor of the castle, which one does not want to miss!

    The team room was very nice and we were able to enjoy a please t lunch there.  Definitely a must do in the Durham County area.

    A truly romantic place from the lond drive up to the castle you will deer frolicking around and the sight of the majestic castle which is breath taking
    This is a grand medival castle with the smell of history in the aiir. You can hear the sounds of swords clashing together if you listen quietly.
    The kitchens have a vast array of copper you can still hear the cook shouting
    My favourite room is the chapel turn around and look at the back wall when you get there. From banquting rooms to sumptuous bedrooms this castle has everything a castle should
    The castle has varied opening times so I would check with the website before you venture out

    I love Raby Castle, no matter what the weather I can enjoy a day there. In the winter I love going over and picking out my Christmas Tree, spending some time in the gift shop and teh cafe, and just taking in the atmosphere.

    Raby Castle is one of the largest and most impressive of medieval castles in County Durham.

    It's a beautiful castle with its towers, turrets, embattled walls, interiors and artworks from the Medieval, Regency and Victorian periods.

    The parkland is full of deer roaming, and there's a lovely rnamental garden, horse-drawn carriages, tearooms and a giftshop with both traditional and unusual gifts & souvenirs.
