Old Wardour Castle


Set in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside beside a lake, these 14th Century castle ruins provide a relaxed, romantic day out for couples, families and budding historians alike.

The original castle was partially destroyed during the Civil War. Learn about its eventful past on the fascinating audio trail. Children will love to explore the grotto and castle rooms or imagine themselves starring in the Hollywood Blockbuster, Prince of Thieves, part of which was filmed here. Family fun trails through the summer months and events programme throughout the year.
