BRICKLIVE at Inveraray Castle

About BRICKLIVE at Inveraray Castle

Taking advantage of the stunning setting of Inveraray Castle the models; including Sir Studley the knight, Torre the Huntswoman, falcons, a wolf and a royal throne, will be taking up residence.

Inveraray Castle is already a favourite destination; with original French tapestries, antique furnishings and an impressive collection of more than 1,300 arms on display. The BRICKLIVE characters link beautifully with the real artifacts and you will find the Duke’s Coronet displayed next to the Fantasy Crown Jewels. Capturing the imagination of younger visitors there is the opportunity to learn more about the real history of Argyll and the Clan Campbell as you hunt down the school of mischievous dragons that have hidden throughout the castle or meet the huntress in the upstairs bedroom.

For those worried about an activity with COVID still a real concern the Castle is confident that this is one of the safest indoor family activities around.

Interactivity takes the form of an activity sheet, one per child, so there is no sharing with others and the models are, by nature, hands-off. The throne, which you can sit on, is cleaned by the attendant staff member between visitors and hand sanitiser is available everywhere. As per the guidance those over 5-years will need to wear a face mask during the visit.

The one-way route of this season is still in effect, which means the additional, private, guest bedrooms, which house gems like the ‘Broughshane’ paintings are available to see, as is the servants spiral stair to the ground floor.

The giftshop will be open during the event, with a few brick models added to the usual roster of souvenirs and Christmas gifts. The tearoom is also expanding its menu with tiny tastebuds in mind and will be offering additional lunch options for younger visitors.

Tickets are available online in timed entry slots to manage capacity and the team are happy to help you with your booking over the phone if preferred. Early bird discounted tickets will be available from the 18th- 24th of September so book early for a great value day-out.
