Wray Castle

Built-in 1840 on the west shores of Lake Windermere, Wray Castle is a mock-gothic castle offering an informal and educative experience for the whole family. The castle is also home to a renowned collection of trees that spread out across the grounds including Wellington and Beech trees.
