Photographer's Day at Preston Castle

Photographer's Day at Preston Castle

Sunday, June 4, Noon to 4 pm,
Sunday, August 27, 4 pm to 8 pm

On Photographer’s Day you can roam the castle on a self-guided tour. Visitors are allowed four hours to explore the non-restricted areas of the castle. This gives you the time you need to set up shots without rushing to keep up the pace of our normal informative tours. 

Come to one, two, or all three times – you will never run out of cool shots.  Note the dates are on Sunday, and the September date includes twilight/evening light. $40 per person. 

Limited to 100 tickets each day. Buy your tickets early as these always sell out. Tickets available on our website,
