Stroll around the moat and enjoy beautiful views of the Castle before marvelling at the magnificent poplar trees. Learn about the history of the grounds through interpretation boards along the route.
The Perimeter walk begins in the Carriage Circle before taking you down to the historic Queen Elizabeth Walk, where you can discover our fire sphere sculpture and see the outside of the chapel’s stain glass window. Depending on the season, you may also catch site of the house martins swooping over the chapel roof.
After crossing the Sunken Garden (once part of the Castle moat), the orchard terrace offers a chance to discover our apple and mulberry trees, and provides a stunning viewing point of the moat.
See what wildlife you can spot on the water and listen to calming birdsong while enjoying the scenery, before entering our wooded boardwalk.
