Clare Castle Country Park, Clare, Sudbury CO10 8NW, UK

About Clare Castle Country Park Trust

A beautiful area to relax, play, get close to nature and learn about Clare’s fascinating history and heritage. Nestled in the town of Clare, the park contains the remains of the 13th Century stone castle keep set upon its 60ft high motte overlooking the town, as well as its inner and outer baileys. A perfect place to set up for a picnic or spend an afternoon reading a book, the Park has a variety of walks and trails that will tell you about what you see and hear as you meander through the paths. 

Within our grounds we have the former railway station which now houses the Platform One Cafe serving hot drinks and food throughout the year and our newly renovated ‘Old Goods Shed’ that is a fantastic space for hire. 

You can follow paths along the gently flowing river and seek the ivy-covered outer bailey walls as you make your way past our ponds. You will often spot nesting moorhens, coots, swans and mallards and can pick up duck food from the café if you’d like to stop off to feed them along the way. If you enter the Park from Station Road you will be met by our bustling play park with ample space to kick a ball around. 

As a part of our National Lottery Heritage Fund we are expanding on the events and activities that we offer and have a busy schedule with lots happening throughout the year. Keep your eye on our website and Facebook to remain up to date with all that is going on in Clare Castle Country Park.
