Powderham Castle


Take time to enjoy a visit to Powderham Castle. Entertaining guided tours of this magnificent 600year old Castle - home to the 18th Earl of Devon - reveals secret doors, stunning castle rooms, amazing architecture and intriguing stories that really bring the history to life. Now during the Easter and Summer holidays you can enjoy the 'Victorian Experience' meet the Castle cook and carry out some of the chores that would have been carried out by domestic staff.

Outside visitors are welcome to explore extensive grounds full of natural rugged beauty and relax in the peaceful surroundings. The Castle is set in a fabulous Deer Park, on the edge of the Exe estuary, only a stone's throw from Exeter. Some visitors take the beautiful walk up to the Belvedere (available until 31 July) where they are justly rewarded with amazing far-reaching views and others may choose a closer look at the wonderful wildlife on the estate on a deer park safari. (small extra charge)

In 2011 there will be some new attractions as well as the usual calendar of special events and themed weeks. Beginning with a Chocolate Factory Fortnight at Easter where you will meet our very own Willy Wonka to Pirate weeks and a Robin Hood week amongst others. For all the latest dates and details keep a look out on the Castle website (link above)
