Larnach Castle Entry

Add to List

*** Entry plus full castle & gardens access ***

William Larnach built Larnach Castle for his beloved wife over 144 years ago and it stands proud as New Zealand’s only genuine castle.

15 years of painstaking construction by master craftsmen made this building a majestic and imposing mansion and one of the most iconic buildings in the country.

The castle is symbolic of Dunedin’s rich history and heritage and a visit to it is a must do for locals and visitors alike.

The castle has had many uses in its time, from mental asylum, to a hospital for soldiers to a nuns retreat. The ballroom was once even used as a holding pen for sheep long before the current owners took on the mammoth task of restoring the castle to its former glory.

Highlights of your visit include:

  • The incredible views across the Otago Peninsula to be enjoyed at the top of the tower
  • The impeccable castle gardens - one of the most beautiful and prestigious gardens in the world
  • Explore the lavish high-ceilinged rooms filled with magnificent furnishings and materials from all over the world
  • Soak up the castles rich, exciting, scandalous and tragic history
  • Larnach Castle - Dunedin's Must See Visitor Attraction

    Larnach Castle & Gardens

    I got cheaper tickets of Bookme for half the price then that of what you pay for at the castle, this is a recommended must do in dunedin, If I was to go again i don't think I would pay to enter the castle just the gardens it was not as great as I was expecting with some rooms off limits for guided tours only, a great souviner shop tho. The gardens were great you spend more time out there walking around the castle then you can inside the castle, outside totally recommended!
