GROUND FLOOR

ART & HISTORY

Our ground floor hosts the majority of our Art and History. Volunteer Explainers are ready to support and inform on getting the very best from you visit.

Mrs Humphreys - the resident Housemaid - who you may be able to spot as you walk through the castle.

'Look out for signs of the family crest foxes  as you tour the museum. Ask a friend if you’re stuck'

FIRST FLOOR

GAMES & INVENTIONS

As well as featuring the Master Bedroom and Lowther College Room you can find a number of activities perfect for families and school groups. Dress-up in Victorian fashion, try your hand at games, puzzles and illusions popular among the Castle's early residents, and discover the inventions and early motion picture technology developed during the Victorian Era

'Unique Victorian pastimes await so be sure to pose like a painter, balance the iron nails and walk the Hall of Mirrors.'

PARK

VICTORIAN GARDENS & KINMEL CAMP

Just before you get to the park you can stop off at Caffi Celf for a spot of lunch. Past the Aviary and the Giant Chess Board you will find our extensive gardens and woodland. The carefully sculpted gardens host a private pond, pine maze and wisteria archway which will take you past the garden wall and into our woodland walk. Keep an eye out for mini beasts and squirrels, begin the hunt for the toughest conker and be sure to explore the reproduction practice trenches of Kinmel Camp next to the Adventure Playground and uncover the history of its role in the First World War.

Make the most of good weather at the Adventure Playground. It's the perfect spot to take a break from exploring the grounds, with sweeping views over the area and jungle gym for children and a maze just a stone's throw away.

'Remember to solve the maze in the Victorian gardens before you leave and get the chance to play croquet in the fields. Also, be sure to visit the WW1 trenches where you can discover more about the part Wales had to play in the war.'

Information

Visitors will need a ticket to explore the Castle, Park and Gardens, available from our Visitor Centre and Gift Shop, but you can visit Caffi Celf/Art Cafe without buying a ticket.

Did you know?

Bodelwyddan Castle has a hotel on site, owned by Warner Leisure Hotels. The attraction part of the castle - its historic rooms, parklands and new reproduction First World War trenches - is run by a charity and is completely separate from the hotel.
