Come and Party at the Castle


Dear royal guest,

the closure of the original castle buildings makes the packages we normally offer unusable.

As much as we love hosting functions and weddings at our venue and making your special days and occasions magical, the partial castle closure is not allowing us to give the service or atmosphere our venue prides itself on.

We have therefore created an option that allows us to utilise the partially covered Castle Courtyard for small celebrations but we unfortunately can no longer offer a wet weather alternative.

The Sunshine Castle remains open for you to enjoy our self guided tour and treasure hunt as well as our quality independent toy shop – Absolut Toys.

Sunny regards
Queen B


The Function Area the Castle has to offer:

•    A paved courtyard partially covered
•    A fully covered cafe terrace which can seat up to 30 guests

Beverage Options for your Party

The Sunshine Castle is fully licensed and has a permanent bar set up at the Café counter – satellite bars can be set up on request.

  • Cash Bar – as per current bar prices at the time of your party.
  • Arranged Bar Tabs – Bar Tabs are available as requested by the hiring party and need to be paid in full prior to the start of your function. Extensions of bar tabs and other miscellaneous costs may be paid within 3 days of the function. A credit card slip is needed to guarantee any extensions. We are happy to move on to a cash bar set up as your bar tab runs out. Whilst running a busy bar Castle staff will attempt to keep on top of your consumption costs as much as possible – please allow for a 10% extension margin in your budget.
  • Beverage Packages –  we offer a variety of beverage packages to suit your party or function. Pricing depends on inclusions and package length. Your functions coordinator can go through the options for this with you.


Please contact our team with any questions you might have. We believe that our venue speaks for itself and welcome the opportunity to show you around in a personal on site appointment.

Terms & Conditions & Booking forms are available in a separate document. These can be handed out and explained to you in an on site appointment or sent out via email. A function booking is not finalised until a deposit has been paid and the booking forms and terms and conditions have been filled out, signed and returned.
