The lane into the castle is bumpy in places, but fine. The lane from the car park to the courtyard is new and smooth. The courtyard is flat, and laid well for a castle but there may be some small areas of rough patches. (This is where all the stalls will be) The hill up to the inner castle (Stable Hill) is more bumpy. Some buggies will be fine, wheelchair users may struggle. (This is where Santa’s Grotto is)

If you have booked Santa Grotto tickets whilst the Fayre is on, please show your Eventbrite email to the steward on the gate. You will be able to park near the blue badge holders, but again would need to be able to walk the 300m to the courtyard.

If you have very young children we suggest you book another day in December to see Santa, as you will be able to park on the courtyard when the Fayre is not on.

Yes you do, so we can ensure that no child is disappointed and there is enough time for all. Tickets can be purchased at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/christmas-grotto-at-gwrych-castle-tickets-51079905372?aff=erelexpmlt

Well behaved Dogs on leads are always allowed at the castle but be mindful this will be a busy event and restricted room within the marquees. There are even some stalls for pets!

Please wear sensible non-slip footwear & warm clothing. Wellington Boots are acceptable.

Please take care of yourselves and your children when walking up the drive. Cars will still need to use the drive to access the castle, and cars/vans will be coming and going through the event. Children must be supervised at all times by a responsible adult.

Yes we have porter-loos on the courtyard, both of which are disability accessible. We have another porter-loo nearby the grotto and another on the exit out of the car park. However, these ones are not accessible to all.

Torches or a form of light would be good if you are visiting later in the day. We close at 4pm so the walk from the event to the car might be a little dark.
