Castle From Home

Whilst the Castle was closed, we created a virtual experience for our visitors through our Online Family Activities, the Castle Blog, and virtual Exhibitions page. These are still currently available for you to enjoy in the comfort of your own home. You are able now to also book tickets and visit the Castle in person; you can find more information here.

Information about any upcoming Events and details of our health and fitness classes which will start to take place again when it is safe to do so.

Digital Interaction

Along with other interactions we began on social media, please meet Dora and Beatrix, our resident ducks who had been hiding in our regular ‘spot the duck’ picture to help our members feel connected to the Castle and stay positive whilst the Castle was closed. 

The resident wooden ducks for Highcliffe Castle, Beatrix and Dora, dressed in their hats and welly boots ready for the 'spot the duck' activity for those in social isolation.

This is picture one of ‘spot the duck’, introducing you to the girls. If you would like to see the other photos of ‘spot the duck’ which were released, including sneak previews to the Wine Cellar and other behind the scenes areas, please like our Facebook Page.

If you have any ideas of interactions or activities you would like to see the Castle do, please email us at
