PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE IF YOU ARE ATTENDING THE ENCHANTED CASTLE.
The Enchanted Castle is an outdoor event so please wear appropriate clothing and as some of the car parking is on grass suitable footwear is recommended. You are welcome to bring a torch for use in the car parking areas but we ask that you do not use them on the illuminated trail. Please ensure that you keep to these illuminated paths at all times and do not touch any of the lights or equipment that you will see on the walk and keep a safe distance away from all the entertainers that are on the trail.
If you are using a childrens buggy there are a small amount of steps leading up to the Walled Garden. Some of the paths are muddy in places due to the high levels of rain fall that we have experienced recently. Sorry no dogs allowed except guidance dogs.
Use of the car park is the responsibility of the car owner. For the consideration of visitors and stewards we ask that you drive carefully when using the car parks. Thank you.
