Auckland Castle Behind the Scenes Tours

Auckland Castle Behind the Scenes Tours

Auckland Castle

Visitors are being given the chance to go behind closed doors for a peek inside the £17m restoration of Auckland Castle in our FREE Behind the Scenes tours.

The Castle, once a private palace for the Prince Bishops of Durham is being returned to its Georgian Gothic opulence and will be otherwise closed to visitors until May 2018.

The Behind the Scenes tours will give visitors a sneak peek inside each stage of the spectacular transformation, with new details unveiled as work progresses.

This will include a chance to follow in the Prince Bishops’ footsteps, walking through a succession of state rooms including the Throne Room, State Entrance and Gentlemen’s Hall, where he would have once greeted his esteemed guests.

There, visitors will learn more about the restoration work being carried out and how the rooms are being reinterpreted to bring the stories of the Castle to life.

The route will be changing regularly over the coming months as the renovation work continues.
