The Earl and Countess of Carnarvon are delighted to share their home with you, one of England’s most beautiful and romantic Castles over the Valentines weekend of Saturday, 11th and Sunday, 12th February 2017.

You will be welcomed in to The Saloon, at the very heart of the Castle where your tour will begin.

Our guides will take you through the State Rooms that are so familiar from the TV series.  Enjoy hearing about the history and the works of art as well as anecdotes from the filming.



You can then explore the Egyptian Exhibition in the atmospheric Cellars of the Castle. The Exhibition tells the story of the world famous discovery, in 1922, of the Tomb of Tutankhamun by the 5th Earl of Carnarvon and Howard Carter.

After the tour, you will be invited into the State Dining Room to enjoy a Champagne Afternoon Tea.  

Entrance is divided into three groups. You can purchase tickets for admission at either 10:30 am, or 12:00 pm or 1:30 pm. Whichever entrance time you choose, you will be able to enjoy a tour of the Castle, the Egyptian Exhibition and Afternoon Tea in the State Dining Room.

Guests in Group A and Group B are most welcome to enjoy the Gardens and visit the Gift shop after their Castle Visit. Guests in Group C are welcome to arrive up to 1 hour before the Castle Entrance time (1:30pm), to  allow sufficient time to enjoy the Gardens and visit the Gift Shop. 

Regrettably the Castle is not able to provide specific vegetarian or gluten free menus for this event. It is a very traditional Tea with a Valentines twist!
