Muncaster Castle, Gardens & Owl Centre

Muncaster Castle, Gardens and Owl Centre is a genuine ancient Haunted castle, The Pennington Family still live there, but they open the castle up to the public, so you can tour the castle and learn about its fascinating and at-times, gruesome history and maybe meet one of its many ghosts. There are wonderful Himalayan Gardens, which are particularly stunning in the spring, when the hundreds of Rhododendrons are in flower, and the whole place it an absolute riot of colour. In the gardens there is a bird of prey centre, where there are owls everywhere that you look and if you time it right you can see a demonstration and see the splendor of a bird on the wing.
