Powderham Castle

Add to your favourites

Powderham Castle in Kenton lies in a beautiful deer park on the banks of the River Exe, just a stone’s throw from the historic cathedral city of Exeter.

The Castle was first opened to visitors in 1959, since then in excess of a million people have been through the doors to share in over 600 years of history and heritage and take away many fond memories.

Very little of the Castle itself has changed since those early days but there are now many more attractions in the grounds including the Secret Garden, Belvedere Tower and American Garden. Dogs are welcome in most areas on a lead (see website for more details). We have a busy events programme that runs throughout the year.

Well worth a visit

It was a beautiful day which added to the enjoyment of the day. Included in the admission were 2 tours which we did. The guides were very informative and interesting… We really enjoyed the day and would like to make a special mention to the young lady on the ticket kiosk as she was so helpful and friendly. She is an asset to Powderham.


Great family day out

We had a lovely family day out at Powderham castle. The castle and grounds are stunning and our guided tour was excellent. Special thanks to Dave our tour guide for involving the children in the tour – one of the best tours we’ve been on. The walled garden play area and petting zoo were a real highlight with wonderful friendly staff.
Highly recommended family day out!

Lovely day out

A lovely place to go for a day out. The tours around the castle are very good. Dogs are welcomed. Lovely walks around the estate and there’s even a ride around the deer park.
