Ayton Castle

Ayton (near Eyemouth)


Bank Holiday Weekend

Saturday-Monday August 24-26


Free Admission to Castle & Exhibition


Art in the Castle is back at Ayton Castle for the third year, and this time for three days over  August Bank Holiday weekend.

We'll be joined by around 20 talented artists and makers, who will exhibit and sell their work. 

The castle, which is still a private home, rarely opens to the public, so this is a great opportunity to visit. Our exhibition is set up in the castle's four main public rooms amongst the owners' private contemporary art collection and their furniture. The castle's little cafe will also be open and the owner's diesel train will be running for rides through the grounds. Tickets for the train and parking are available at the station on Eyemouth Road. The train travels through the grounds and stops opposite the castle's entrance and cafe.

Entry to the castle and exhibition is free, though donations will be welcome towards the Castle's fund to restore the walled garden.


This event is now fully booked, but if you're an artist or maker and interested in joining The Tin Shed, we still have spaces at our other events.
