The castle features a moat (watch out for gators!), a massive working 3,000 lb. drawbridge with an accompanying portcullis, a chapel, five round corner turrets, a courtyard, and a central keep with a dramatic view of the surrounding lands. A perimeter wall encompasses the castle, ensuring you are safe from oncoming marauders during your visit.
Newman’s Castle is available for day tours 6 days a week and special events. Reservation are required.
The castle hosts weddings, wine tastings, birthday parties, and any other special occasion.

How do tours work?
Groups of any size are welcome. Please call ahead of time to make reservations.
We ask you to call again a day or two before the actual trip date to confirm the final headcount. This way we will know how many lunches to prepare.
The day of the tour
On the day of the tour check in at Newman’s Bakery at 504 E. Main St. by 10:30am.
