Your visit will follow the route taken by the Bishop and his guests, down the 18th-century stairs to the Walled Garden, which is divided into three sections: an upper garden, terrace and greenhouses.
Situated over the main terrace of the Upper Walled Garden, will be the Walled Garden Restaurant, a striking new contemporary structure designed by Japanese architects SANAA. Click here to find out more.
Rainton Construction Ltd. began preliminary works on the Walled Garden in December 2017, clearing the site.
Now, the Durham-based contractor is moving on to the next stage of enabling works, repairing the historic walls, restoring the original contours of the Walled Garden and re-laying soil in the lower garden to prepare the ground.
The work is expected to take seven months, ready for planting to begin in early 2019.
Anyone visiting the castle will be able to see the developments taking shape from the castle driveway above.
This page will be updated regularly with news, images and films of the Walled Garden development.
