The grandest gothic revival castle in all the land…

Welcome to England’s most elegant and illustrious gothic revival stately home; a beautifully preserved relic of the early modern aristocracy and a stunning venue for weddings and events as well as a dramatic TV and film location.

Built by the premier Baron of England, Lord Mowbray, Segrave and Stourton in the 1840s, this stately home is steeped in history. Enter into its time capsule for an insight into by-gone eras, and be enchanted by the ambiance of a castle once owned by Prince Frederick (the ‘Grand Old Duke of York’ and brother to King George IV) in the 18th century.

The estate is open to the public from Easter until the end of October for guided tours and is available year-round to hire for your special day or private event.

"Visited this magnificent House on Sep 20th 2016. Purchased in 1983 by its current owner an American Businessman Dr Rolph. Who purchased the castle with 1.5 Hectares of land. The building was in a state of disrepair and in need of substantial roof and structural repair. In 1986 Dr Rolph founded the Gerald Arthur Rolph Foundation for Historic Preservation and Education to preserve Allerton Park for English and World Heritage. Im so glad that he did, his contribution to Gothic Architecture and renovation is priceless to our Nation."

"Wow from the first moment you enter the castle. The huge wooden doors at the entrance is so well hung you can open it with one finger. Then you enter a huge space with a 70 feet high ceiling with a wooden roof. Lots of wooden panels and carvings. You go into a large white plaster room that almost gives the impression of a Mediterranean tent. Here you can have tea and cake to wait for the guided tour. An amazing jewel in Yorkshire ! "

"Firstly thank you for your help and assistance in the run up to the date of the wedding. You were always very helpful and a pleasure to talk to – thank you. There were lots of great comments from our guests about the venue: Best wedding I have every been to; Everything organised and ran superbly well; Fantastic setting for a great wedding. Personally I thought the Great Hall looked even better than I expected and was very pleased with the way your representative discreetly looked after the guests and provided them with interesting background about the castle when asked. I would strongly recommend your venue, including the bridal suite, to anyone planning a wedding in North Yorkshire."
