The castle is the home of the Hervey-Bathurst family and inside you will find lavish interiors containing medieval armour, fine art, tapestries and a Gothic Drawing Room designed by AW Pugin.
Eastnor Castle’s arboretum is surprising for the beauty and exceptional size of the trees, growing as they do in the alkaline soil of the Malvern Hills rather than in the acid soil where most other conifer collections are found. Most of Eastnor Castle's exotic trees were planted in the second half of the 19th century, at the height of the Victorian passion for plant collecting. The 2nd and 3rd Earls Somers collected seed on their travels. Many more plants came from botanical expeditions and from specialist nurseries where trees were raised from seed imported from all over the world.
On offer in the Castle Tea Room is a small selection of delicious tasting light lunches, afternoon teas, snacks and hot & cold drinks.
The Eastnor Castle Gift Shop is open to the public on normal open days and offers an imaginative and well-priced range of branded and non-branded gifts to suit all budgets. There is also a smaller range of Eastnor Castle branded gifts.
