Auckland Castle

A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER REGARDING COVID-19 Tuesday, 17 March 2020

We are closing Auckland Castle, Auckland Tower and Mining Art Gallery forthwith, and will review this decision on a regular basis.

The Deer Park will remain open; we request that visitors ‘keep their distance’ and keep away if they have a fever or continuous cough.

No bad news comes without a silver lining, and we are diverting our efforts to help the Bishop Auckland community in providing community food at a time of some distress for many families. We do this under the initiative we are calling ‘The Auckland Project: Closed Doors, Open Hearts.’

If you have pre-booked tickets, please come to see us at a later date, when the coast is clear.

If you would like a refund, please contact us on 01388 743750 or email [email protected], or it would be an act of kindness if you would support the community by refraining from asking for this.

We will be regularly updating our website and social media, so follow us for the latest information.
