Self-guiding digital audio tours in eight languages and a documentary film on the life of Sir Henry Pellatt are provided. Two hectares (5 acres) of estate gardens surround the castle and are open May through October. A glass pavilion on the grounds hosts concerts on Mon. and Tues. evenings, mid-May to late Aug.
