Over 300 acres of parkland, woodland and historic gardens
Elvaston Castle Country Park encompasses approximately 321 acres of open parkland, woodland and more formal historical gardens. It is s also the venue for the popular Woodland Festival each September.
At the heart of the estate lies Elvaston Castle, a gothic revival masterpiece (not open to the public) designed by James Wyatt in the early 1800s based on the original house dating back to 1633.
Whatever the season there is always lots to see and do in and around the park – walking, cycling, horse riding, bird watching, picnicking, kite flying, photography, exploring the park, nature reserve and much more.
Refreshments available in the castle courtyard. Car parking charges apply unless you are a Blue Badge holder.
