Formerly a great stronghold of the Lord Wardens of the Marches, Naworth is a romantic, medieval castle set in rugged and historic Border country, some twelve miles north east of Carlisle. Home of the Dacre and Howard families, the castle dates back to the early 14th century, although there is evidence of an earlier fortification in 1270.

In more recent times, the castle has once again become home to the Howard family - Philip and Elizabeth, who continue to make it available for specific, exclusive events.

Naworth Castle is a highly regarded venue for corporate days and conferences, and Philip Howard has transformed the 2,000 acre estate into an acclaimed setting for car launches, country pursuits, film locations, exclusive historic tours and weddings. The castle lends itself to a wide variety of events; it boasts a unique collection of pre-Raphaelite interiors and original medieval chambers, a dramatic exterior and a wonderful seventeenth century walled garden. We have nine years experience of tailoring events to your own individual requirements.
