Orford Castle 

SUITABLE FOR

Adults

Join us for a hard hat guided tour of the scaffolding which currently surrounds Orford Castle. See a once in a lifetime view of the castle and the crucial conservation work that is being undertaken to protect the much-loved 12th century Suffolk landmark for the future. Please be aware that you’ll need a head for heights and feel comfortable climbing the ladders of the scaffolding. 

The scaffolding will be inaccessible during adverse weather conditions and tours will be unable to go ahead. 

Over 18 years old only. Hard hat and Hi-Vis PPE must be worn and will be provided at site. Sturdy sensible footwear such as walking boots (no open toed sandals or crocs) should be worn.

There will be two tours per day which will be approximately 1.5 hours long. The tours will include a safety briefing, some project background and access to the scaffold to see the conservation repair works underway.

Limited spaces are available, so pre-booking is required. Please telephone: 01394 450472. Tickets are free.

Please note Tuesday 23 August is the only remaining date available to book and the times for the tours are 10.30am & 1.30pm.
