Preston Castle Events


Throughout the year, Preston Castle presents a variety of events allowing visitors to experience the Castle in uniquely enchanting ways.

From Photo Days to Christmas at the Castle, from Movie Night to our renown Preston Castle Haunt, we provide many opportunities each year for you to discover Preston Castle.

As a non-profit organization, the Preston Castle Foundation produces these events in order to raise the funds necessary to maintain and ultimately restore our beloved castle to its original state.
