Games in Knaresborough Castle grounds

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

The ongoing pandemic means not all of our services are operating normally, some facilities are unavailable, and activities may not be taking place.

Knaresborough Castle is an ancient monument which is owned by the Duchy of Lancaster and maintained by us.

The grounds are open as a public park all year round.

The castle stands on top of a high cliff and has dramatic views across to the viaduct and the River Nidd. The grassed areas are enhanced with mature trees and flowerbeds.

18-hole putting green and crown green bowls are available from March to October.

Bookings can be made in person at the castle museum or by contacting 01423 556188.
