Eastnor Castle introduces Mellow Mondays

Visitors to a popular tourist attraction near Ledbury can enjoy a tranquil visit every Monday in June as Eastnor Castle introduces Mellow Mondays which is being rolled out for the first time during school term time.

As a contrast to the busy family events held most weekends between Easter and September, Eastnor Castle will be open every Monday throughout June as part of its Mellow Mondays programme.

Visitors will be able to enjoy a peaceful lakeside walk, admire the magnificent trees in the Arboretum and marvel and the castle interiors with guided tours throughout the day, offering the perfect day out for its older visitors.

Becky Williams, Head of Marketing at Eastnor Castle, said “Over recent years, we’ve received more and more feedback from our older visitors that they would like to experience visiting on quieter days. This is the first time we’ve opened up during school term time and we hope our visitors will enjoy a relaxing day out. Dogs are very welcome on these days too.”

The Castle Tea Room will be open on Mellow Mondays providing hot and cold drinks and snacks, and all adult visitors will be offered a free Mr Whippy Ice Cream.

Mellow Mondays are being held on 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th June between 10.30am and 5.30pm. More information can be found on the Eastnor Castle website
