Muncaster Castle

Muncaster Castle


Home of the Penningtons for 800 years. Tour this glorious castle with an informative and free interactive wand. The Great Hall, octagonal library and elegant dining room must not be missed. Elegant rooms, historic furnishings, superb works of art, yet still a lived-in home. The audio tour, narrated by the Pennington family, whose ancestors have been at Muncaster for 8 centuries, enlivens the castle, bringing the past to the present.
