Welcome to Larnach Castle - New Zealand’s only Castle

With its exciting, sometimes scandalous and tragic history, magnificent carved ceilings, New Zealand antiques and breathtaking views, Larnach Castle offers you a vision of the past and present. Today, the Castle is the home of the Barker family, who have spent over forty years lovingly restoring the building and recreating the beauty of the 14 hectares of gardens and grounds.

Treat your mother to High Tea and a guided tour at Larnach Castle this Mother's Day. Find out more here

During the month of May, you are invited to dine in the Larnach Castle dining room for a very special night out. Join our in-house guests and members of the public with pre-drinks, stories about the Castle's history and dinner in house-party style. Contact us for more information.
