Planning Your Visit

Remaining open days in 2017

October:

Sundays 22nd & 29th 10 to 5
Wednesdays 18th & 25th 11 to 4
Tuesday 24th 11 to 4

We will be closed for the winter after our last open day on Sunday the 29th October, and will re-open in April 2018. A schedule will be published here in the New Year.

Please note that we occasionally have to close on scheduled open days, sometimes at short notice. Please check the opening diary to the right, or the full calendar at the foot of this page.

Admission charges 2017

Hedingham welcomes families, and we continue to make it easier and cheaper for a family visit than ever before. We define a family as a group of people containing at least one child who can all fit in the same car. Please note though that the following table of admission fees does not apply on special Event days. Because these are very expensive to arrange, different pricing applies.

Dogs are welcome, except on major Event days, but must be kept on a lead at all times, and will not be allowed into the Castle. If in doubt, please give us a call.

Standard Admissions – Castle and Gardens – non Event days
