Bodelwyddan Castle and Park is situated in Denbighshire, North Wales. Set in 260 acres of magnificent parkland, the Castle is a partner of the National Portrait Gallery (NPG) and is open to the public most days throughout the year.
As well as being an historic house and accredited museum with a free audio tour available. The Castle also boasts large areas of formal garden and natural woodland. An extra-special particular feature is the area of practice trenches dated from the First World War, located in the parkland.
The rooms on display show us how a country house may have looked at different times during the 19th Century. The portraits found within the rooms are on loan from the NPG and are displayed to represent a common idea between them: reformers, explorers and thinkers, for example, or by a particular artist.
Bodelwyddan Castle and Park is an ideal location for a family day out. Enjoy exploring the adventure playground, garden maze and Victorian toys and games. Have fun with the interactive exhibits in our specially created learning galleries and email yourself a photograph dressed in Victorian costume, based on Victorian photographer Camille Silvy‘s photo-studio.
The Castle regularly welcomes new and returning visitors for our special events and changing exhibitions that are arranged throughout the year. Bodelwyddan Castle is also an ideal setting for your wedding.
