Tutbury Castle is a 20-minute walk from Tutbury & Hatton station.

Tutbury Castle is an 11th century castle set in 38 acres perched high on a grassy ledge overlooking the beautiful Dove Valley.

The castle is best known as one of the prisons of Mary Queen of Scots, who was held here on four occasions. It was here that she became involved in the plot that ultimately led to her execution at Fotheringhay.

Since 2000, the castle has taken on a new life, welcoming thousands of visitors every year. With historical re-enactment, archaeological excavation, an authentic Tudor garden and medieval herbery, the ‘haunted’ Great Hall and King’s Bedroom and regular events there’s something for everyone.
