Caldicot Castle & Country Park
Caldicot Castle & Country Park was founded by the Normans, developed in royal hands as a stronghold in the Middle Ages and restored as a Victorian family home. The castle, which is within the idyllic wooded country park, has a romantic and colourful history.
The country park and car park is operating from 8:30am – 7:30pm. During our open season, the castle’s hours are 11am to 4pm from Tuesday to Sunday and entry is free. The castle is closed on Mondays (except bank holidays). The toilets in the country park are also open at 8.30 am -4.30 pm.
Visitors to the castle can explore its history, enjoy walks through the tranquil gardens and trails around the park and refreshments in the tea room.
The castle also hosts various events throughout the season. For more details, please click here.
Between the end of October and April vehicular access and the main car park is closed between 5.30pm and 8.00am (although the Church Road car park remains open). The Country Park remains open in this time.
