Mock-Gothic castle sitting on the Windermere shores, with turrets, towers and informal grounds.Wray Castle came to us without its contents so you will not see a 'typical' National Trust house full of paintings, furniture and antiques with an...more

Looking for a walk on a dull day, we headed for Wray Castle. We did not go in, but the walk along the lakeside was lovely. Beware, if you want to catch a boat back, it only runs in peak summer months. October is too...More
Good and interesting castle, not as big as i was expecting though! Quite a short visit as it is on the smaller side for a “castle” but still great. Lovely ice cream from the castle cafe and lovely outdoor seating.

A rather bizarre property in that it looks quite imposing on the outside but inside was a odd collection of exhibitions which didn't bear much relation, if any, to each other. My husband was rather bored there but the toddler had the best time. For...More
We were two grandparents and a 7-year-old visiting in pouring rain on an October Saturday. We did nothing outdoors! The castle is Victorian so has no "real" history. However, the NT has refurbished it and filled rooms with various things aimed at under-tens. These are...More
