Please note, Hylton Castle remains closed to the public following extensive building works, and as a result of covid restrictions. This will be reviewed in line with government guidelines and we hope to open soon.
This distinctive and highly decorative gatehouse-tower of a castle was built by the wealthy Sir William Hylton shortly before 1400.
Originally containing four floors of self-contained family accommodation, its entrance front displays royal and family heraldry, including Richard II's white hart badge.
