Bolton Castle is probably most famous for being the place holding Mary, Queen of Scots a prisoner for six months. The story goes that she escaped and made her way towards Leyburn only to lose her 'shawl' on the way, hence the name ('The Shawl') of the cliff edge that runs westward out of Leyburn. 


You can find plenty more information about the caste on Wikipedia: and the official site.

You can enter Castle Bolton for around £10 and visit its numerous attractions if time permits. It also has a tea room, so it's a good spot to freshen up and grab some drinks and snacks.

Link to Social Media page (best option for checking the latest updates on operating hours): 



Opening hours vary year on year and can be seasonal. To avoid disappointment please check in advance of your visit for opening hours. Be aware that on UK bank holidays and school holidays standard opening hours may differ.


COVID19 – The impact of the global pandemic is evident for all local businesses over Yorkshire and the rest of the UK. Sadly, some pubs/hotels/restaurants/museums may have closed doors for good, some may be temporarily closed, and some may be open but will be operating under local guidance/restrictions from the UK government.

Depending on the dates you are walking, this may effect their normal operating hours, the number of people allowed in their property, the ability to serve customers indoors or outdoors, and in pubs it may even not be possible to serve alcohol at certain times of the day. To avoid disappointment, we recommend you check any pubs/cafe's/museums/tearooms/restaurants own website, social media or give them a call in advance of your visit. (were known we have given you the website and telephone number).
