Auckland Castle Deer House Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful and wonderfully, knowledgeable staff. Clean facilities, lovely cafe and gift shop. Would loved to go back.
Must be seen. Lovely parc. Thé car park is just 150 m away from the castle. If you are hungry there are nice tea rooms and cafes opposite the tower of Auckland.
A 10 minute walk from Auckland Tower in Bishop Auckland. Built in the mid 18th century to provide shelter for the deer around the castle. Beautiful gothic structure and shows the wealth of the bishops of that time. Well worth a visit if you're in the area, also it's free.
Lovely little place for walkies! Lots of cafes dotted around, a lovely little town centre. Really interesting architecture and placquards throughout explaining what the buildings are etc.
Good walk out at lunchtime. Can be muddy around the deer House but bridleway to and from is gravel
