Ripley Castle and Gardens, situated 3 miles from Harrogate in North Yorkshire on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, is an historic attraction open to the public all year round and makes for a fascinating and entertaining day out, in a beautiful location.
The Castle also makes the perfect setting for any corporate entertaining event whether it be a meeting or dinner. The setting is stunning, the service is friendly and efficient, and the catering is exceptional.
For weddings, Ripley Castle stands apart: It is beautiful, historic and picture postcard perfect.
Special guided tours of the gardens with our Gardener take place on set days from March to September at 1.30pm, please meet at the Gift Shop. General admission applies. RHS Primary Card holders to pay £2.
Find out why we all fall down when we play ring-a-ring-o'roses, why Bonnie Bobby Shafto might not really have been a hero and why the Ladybird's house was on fire and her children had gone!
A great summer day out for the whole family.
