We have a huge amount of space here at Raby, and want to provide safe access for visitors to support their health and general wellbeing.
“Our priority is the safety of our staff and visitors, and we have introduced a number of measures across the site to support social distancing to keep everyone safe. We want visitors to feel confident about visiting Raby, and sharing information about the precautions we are taking so that people know what to expect before they arrive has been incredibly important. This is new to everyone, and we know how important it is that we get this right.
“It is lovely to see people enjoying Raby Castle’s open spaces and beautiful views once again, and we’ve had really positive feedback from visitors since reopening the Deer Park last week.
“We appreciate that some visitors may not be able to return to Raby for some time, and we are continuing to look at how we can share news and information with those who cannot visit.”
