Castle Drogo

Castle Drogo

Castle Drogo is situated high above the Teign Gorge. It was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens for self-made millionaire Julius Drewe. It looks ancient, but this remarkable building was only constructed 100 years ago, the last castle ever built in England. From the beginning it has suffered from water penetration and is now undergoing a 6 year conservation project, now nearly at an end, to make it watertight.

Inside you can explore the castle‘s refreshed layout, with rooms re-arranged with installations and precious treasures displayed in new ways.

Outside, stroll around the formal gardens or explore the Teign Valley with its ancient gorge, teeming with wildlife.
You can recharge at the café with a traditional Devon cream tea or tuck into a slice of cake.
