Built in 1830 by Sir Goldsworthy Gurney, The Castle embodies the spirit of Victorian engineering ingenuity, it was a pioneering building on sand using a concrete raft foundation, the very first of its kind. It is Grade II listed and is arguably Bude’s most significant built heritage.
The Castle has been used for a variety of purposes and is now licensed for civil ceremonies as well as being home to Cafe Limelight, the Heritage Centre, the Willoughby Gallery and Blanchminister Room.
