Supporting the community

Eastnor Castle gives careful consideration to our Corporate Social Responsibility and strives for long-term commitment to being a responsible business. We are proud of the committed support we are able to give to the local community in a variety of different ways.

Supporting Charity

We support a number of charities each year by offering complimentary tickets and use of the castle and grounds for  fundraising events.

Eastnor Primary School & Bubbles Nursery

The children from Eastnor Primary School and Bubbles Nursery, both located in the heart of the village, can often be found enjoying a walk around the grounds and playing in the adventure playground on days when the castle and grounds are closed to visitors.

Tickets and Prizes

We receive many requests each year for tickets to be used as raffle prizes at fundraising events for schools, charities and other groups. Each request is carefully considered and, whenever possible, we are able to send tickets if the request has come from a local organisation.
