Planning Your Visit

We will open to the public for the start of the season on Easter Monday, 2nd April, with two magnificent flying displays from Coda Falconry, and then according to the schedule below.

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.

Opening times, Castle and Gardens, non Event days

Sundays & Wednesdays 11 to 4
Tuesdays School holidays only 11 to 4

Please check that we are open before setting out. We occasionally have to close for private functions.
