Our Ticket System: Pre-Book and Walk-Up

Highclere Castle operates using two types of tickets: the 'Walk-up' ticket and the 'Pre-Booked' ticket.

Pre-Booked tickets are available for purchase on our Ticket Website here. You can purchase Pre-Booked Tickets for special events and for general Public Opening days.

On general Public Opening days only, you can also access the Castle, Egyptian Exhibition and Gardens by purchasing Walk-Up tickets from Visitor Reception on the day of your visit. These are subject to availability because, in rare cases, where the Castle has a lot of visitors we may have have to stop selling tickets on the door due to licensing agreements and so we cannot guarantee entry. Walk-Up tickets are, therefore, best purchased between 9-10am or 2:30-3:30pm. Last entry to the Castle and Gardens is 4pm. Gates Close at 6pm.
