Tamworth Castle to temporarily close with immediate effect - 18 March 2020

In light of new guidance from the Government, we have decided to temporarily close Tamworth Castle in order to protect the health and safety of our communities in the joint effort to tackle coronavirus.

Tamworth Castle will close to members of the public with immediate effect. Initially this will be until the end of March, with a decision as to whether to extend the closures to be made next week.

Any further updates will be posted to our website and our social media channels, Facebook and Twitter, as and when we have any news to share. We ask people to please bear with us in the meantime and thank everyone for their patience, understanding and support.

We have several special events throughout the year at Tamworth Castle, in addition to our permanent exhibitions and interactive displays. From Dragon Hunts and Ghost Searches to Santa Trails and themed living history events, check out our special events below.
