Hartlebury Castle Cafe have taken the decision that we are unable to open until Spring 2021.

The Trustees of Hartlebury Castle Preservation Trust have had to take the difficult decision to close the Bishop’s House and cafe for an extended winter shutdown from 1st September through to Spring 2021. This decision reflects the extremely challenging financial conditions arising from the COVID-19 crisis, which saw the charity unable to welcome visitorsfor 4 months at what would normally be one of its busiest periods of the year.
