Castle gets ready to celebrate

Glamis Castle has launched a new series of gift vouchers to encourage visitors to experience the spirit of Glamis during 2012 – the year of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

The gift vouchers include a range of special interest private tours, a new afternoon tea ticket, Friend of Glamis season tickets and tickets to The Prom at Glamis.

The year 2012 will be special for Glamis Castle as it celebrates the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with a programme of special events and exhibitions.

These range from a new Afternoon Tea which will feature some of the Queen Mother’s best loved recipes, to a new Diamond Jubilee Exhibition and the much anticipated return of The Prom at Glamis featuring the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.

David Broadfoot, Glamis Castle Administrator said: “We await 2012 with much anticipation and very much look forward to celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee here at Glamis.

“With the festive season now upon us we have the perfect opportunity to launch our new range of gift vouchers.

“Giving visitors the chance to experience Glamis Castle in an original way - whilst also assisting in solving the perennial problem of what to buy the person who has everything this Christmas.”

Gift Vouchers are available to purchase online at now.

Glamis Castle is open until December 31 with free entry to the gardens and grounds throughout December.

A range of festive events including a Santa’s Grotto, Concerts at Glamis, Castle Tours will be available in the run up to Christmas.

The Castle closes for essential maintenance in January and reopens for visits on April 1, 2012.
