Sherborne Castle & Gardens

Built by Sir Walter Raleigh in 1594, this historic house reflects a glorious variety of decorative styles from over 400 years of English history. The Castle’s rich interiors house nationally important collections of art, furniture and porcelain together with Raleigh’s original kitchen, family artefacts and archaeological ‘finds’ from the old medieval castle.

Alongside this are 42 acres of beautiful gardens and a 50 acre lake created in 1753 by Capability Brown as a nationally important English Landscape Garden with magnificent specimen trees, herbaceous borders and sweeping lawns.
