Q. Do you have a café or toilet facilities?

A. We have temporary toilets available at the castle. We have no water or power at Gwrych Castle, so we do not have a café at present. We advise visitors to bring a picnic to be enjoyed on the East Lawn.

Q. How accessible is Gwrych Castle?

A. The main building is a ruin so there is currently no public access. While we welcome all visitors, disabled visitors need to bear in mind that the Gwrych Castle Estate is a large property with great distances between various parts of the grounds.

The terrain is often uneven, with many steep footpaths. Many of our footpaths are unsuitable for wheelchair users and slopes can be tiring for a person assisting. We would also recommend leaving prams in the car, alternatively the pram will have to be carried due to the terrain.

Some self-drive three wheeled vehicles, pavement vehicles and powered wheelchairs may have difficulty on the estate’s terrain.

Q. Do you have a shop at Gwrych Castle?

You can purchase merchandise online and at Gwrych Castle. Our shop is currently located inside our visitors centre, this is the same building used when scanning your tickets upon arrival.
