Visiting Beeston Castle - Keeping you Safe

Beeston Castle and Sandstone Ridge Landscape

Whilst Beeston Castle is now open to visitors, English Heritage has introduced limits on visitor numbers to help keep everyone safe, and you won't be able to visit without your booking confirmation. If you're a Member, your ticket will be free, but you still need to book in advance.

Although things might be a little different when you visit, you'll still be able to enjoy exploring the places where history really happened on the Sandstone Ridge. And you'll still be given a warm and safe welcome by the team of friendly — if socially distant — staff and volunteers! We are longing to see you all return.

What's Available?

  • The Castle — Beeston castle is open for you to enjoy while keeping to social distancing rules
