THE National Trust is set to reopen Dunster Castle to visitors again from Monday (August 24).

Visitors have been able to visit the gardens and grounds at Dunster Castle since June, but from Monday guests will be allowed to look around the main house for the first time in more than four months.

One-way systems and limited numbers inside houses will ensure social distancing is possible, while enhanced cleaning and hand sanitising stations will be available.

The Castle is open daily from 10am to 4pm with last admission at 4pm (the garden is open 10am to 5pm daily).

Visitors will need to book their visit in advance through the online booking system at

Visits are limited to ensure social distancing and entry to the house is not guaranteed on the day you visit.

In line with government guidance, visitors are also required to wear a face covering in the house.

David Moore, house manager for Dunster Castle, said: “We are excited to be welcoming visitors back to the castle again, for the past two months visitors to the garden have been eager to visit the castle and I’m happy that we can finally say the castle is open.”
