Lowther Castle and Gardens
Lowther Castle & Gardens is one of the most popular and unique tourist spots in the Lake District.
Built at the turn of the 19th century and demolished in 1957, leaving only the façade and walls intact, the castle is now a garden for visitors to enjoy. The 130-acre gardens contain relics such as a Roman bath and stone columns, providing reminders of the mid-Victorian period.
The Rock, Japanese, Sweet-Scented and Iris gardens hark back to the early Edwardian period. You can discover the courtyard dotted with hornbeam sentinels and combinations of herbaceous perennials, woolly grasses, and clipped yews.
You’ll also find a rose garden inspired by the Sleeping Beauty myth. The Western Terrace is a must for all visitors, from here you enjoy spectacular views of the Lowther Valley and the Lake District mountains beyond.
