It is important to note that the Castle Gatehouse is accessed via a narrow spiral staircase and may not be suitable for those with mobility issues.

Please note that the Royal Gallery has a smart dress code which means a business suit for gentlemen and a dress or suit for ladies. Jeans, short trousers and sports shoes are not permitted. Whilst the Royal Gallery is undercover, it is open to the front, so we ask that you dress warmly to protect from the evening chill. For your comfort, knee rugs will be available for the duration of the performance.

This is a mixed dining experience and guests will be seated at shared tables for dinner.
