Astley Castle Open Days

Nuneaton, Warwickshire

Friday 6th to Sunday 8th September - 10am to 4pm and Monday 9th September - 10am to 1pm

No booking required.


The ancient moated site of Astley Castle holds unequivocally modern living accommodation clasped within the shell of the Castle. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the huge living room and kitchen look out over Astley’s former collegiate church and into beautiful internal courts formed by ruined spaces. Come and explore the new accommodation hidden within the ruined walls and the new knot garden and find out more about its history through our footpath trails.

2019 marks the Bicentenary of the birth of Mary Ann Evans, better known as George Eliot, in Nuneaton, England, on 22nd November, 1819. She is regarded as one of the world’s greatest novelists. Landmark is joining up with the George Eliot Fellowship in celebration and will be hosting traditional dance groups Anker Morris, Ansley Morris and First Class Stamp between 2 and 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.  

On Saturday evening between 7.30 and 9pm a folk music concert performed by local musicians, will be held in the main room at Astley. Tickets are limited and can only be purchased via the George Eliot website -
