Enjoy a tour of the ruins of Old Wardour Castle, and learn about castle’s long and gruesome battle.
The unusual hexagonal ruins of Old Wardour Castle stand serenely in their lakeside setting, protected by acres of wood. But their beguiling scene of rural tranquillity masks a bloodthirsty past - a terrible battle was fought here in 1643 when Parliamentarian forces besieged the castle for several weeks.
An audio tour brings to life the castle’s long and gruesome history. Today, surrounded by landscaped grounds which include an elaborate rockwork grotto, Old Wardour is a picturesque location for picnics and a relaxing day out.
