Elvaston Castle information centre and shop

Elvaston's information centre and shop is located in the historic cobbled courtyard.

Elvaston Castle information centre and shop

The shop is open and offers all your favourite hot and cold drinks and snacks along with gifts, dog treats, confectionery, memorabilia, cards and more for you to discover.

Although there are fewer restrictions on the number of people visiting the shop at once, please help us to keep both you and our staff safe by following any markings or guidance in place. Please follow government guidance on face coverings.

You can find the shop easily by walking from the castle, through the archway underneath the clock tower.

You'll also find public toilets, with a disabled toilet and a baby changing area (ladies toilet only due to space restrictions in the gents) within the courtyard. There is a large noticeboard underneath the archway containing a site map and information about events in the park.

The park office is located in this courtyard, as are the Earl of Harrington's stables, once used to house his prize stallions. The stables are now used as a display area, with the potential to house small scale local art exhibitions.

See if you can, spot the wheel wash area where carriages were washed down before they were put away for the day!

The information centre and shop provides:

  • helpful staff
  • 2 mobility scooters - 'Trampers' - for hire
  • a well-stocked gift shop, offering items ranging from greeting cards and quality recycled picnic blankets, to pocket money toys and eco-friendly gifts
  • hot and cold drinks
  • confectionery, ice cream and pre-packaged muffins and flapjacks
  • seasonal heritage vegetables and plants grown on site by our dedicated volunteers
  • a wide range of information leaflets and booklets - most are free
  • maps and information about the park and local nature reserve
