The Castle's Gardens
Four small period gardens have been laid out within the castle. Visitors to the castle can enjoy these at their own pace, or look out for our special garden tours that take place on selected Sundays in the summer.
The 16th Century Sutler's Garden is planted with a variety of herbs for kitchen use.
Lambert's Garden design reflects an interest in medicinal herbs.
The 18th Century Governor's Garden is based on a 1735 garden plan in the castle.
The 19th century Master Gunner's Garden reflects the domestic scene of the time.
Castle Cornet is open every day from 10.00am - 5.00pm April - October.
