Groups tours are a speciality at Ardgillan where a day out can be enjoyed by groups or societies from all walks of life. Tours are available all year round and are delivered by our passionate team of tour guides.

A day at Ardgillan can be as long or as short as you like. Groups can begin their day by taking a Castle Tour with one of our experienced guides. These tours are approximately one hour.

Our Tearooms provide a perfect ambiance for groups to relax and unwind, with our sun terrace offering a spectacular view of the southern aspect of the park. Refreshments can be ordered in advance by groups to allow for more time to explore. For more information on our Tearooms please visit the Tearooms section of our website.

A tour of our gardens, can tremendously enhance the visitor’s experience at Ardgillan. Garden tours must be booked in advance, however, visitors are welcome to explore the garden on their own, at their own pace.

For the more adventurous, a walk through the woodland and the more remote south-westerly areas of the park and afterwards a stroll down to the demesne’s private beach and back to the castle will top off an action-packed day.

Buses can park on site near the castle. For more information on access please contact us.
