The Castle Green


There are a number of seats in the castle gardens for public use and we welcome those having picnics. Games can be hired from the castle shop can played on the grass.

Playing football is not permitted on the castle lawn along with some other ball sports so as not to discomfort other users. Please refer to the bye laws signs or contact the council on 01288 353576 for details of permitted activities.

Please dispose of rubbish responsibly in the litter bins sited around the Castle Gardens.

The lawn is available for hire for wedding marquees and other activities.  For more information regarding charges and Terms and Conditions, contact Tracey Gliddon 01288 353576 or e-mail
