You are invited to take an interesting and informative historical tour of Preston Castle. You will be guided by a trained docent through the first floor, second floor and basement and learn about the history of the Preston School of Industry.
New this year is the option to take a self guided tour using your smart phone and QR codes we have posted throughout the Castle. No reservations are necessary. The first tour goes out at 10:00 AM and depending on demand tours depart every 15-30 minutes.
Also available is a Virtual Tour for our mobility restricted guests which will take place on the accessible ground floor (basement) of the Castle.
The last tour goes out at 1:00 PM. Cameras are allowed but please no tripods.
Public tours are available every Saturday, April through September 3, and select Thursdays, June through August. See prices and dates below.
Take a Historical flashlight tour through the majestic Preston Castle. You will take a 70-90 minute tour through this beautiful, eerie, 120 year old building guided only by a Docent and your flashlight. This is not a paranormal event. Space is limited to 45 pre-paid guests, $20 each.
Gates open a half hour before the tour. Tour times vary based on sunset. These tours will only be offered one Friday night each month in January, February, March, and April. One additional night, December 10, will be offered as part of our Olde Tyme Christmas event.
Dress warmly, as the Castle can be cold, especially at night. Small flashlights will be provided. Flashlight Tours are not suitable for small children.
Make the castle the destination for your next group activity. Large families, Red Hatters, car clubs, and many school groups have enjoyed great days at the castle. Typical private tours take a little over one hour.
Complete the interest form that will be sent to our tour coordinator. Once a date and time are agreed upon return to this page and make the prepayment for the tour. All private tours require prepayment. If you have additional questions call or email us.
Our special group tours are for groups interested in spending longer times in the castle with freedom to roam in the non-restricted areas. The castle is a great place to host a photography class or lead a ghost hunting group.
