Wheelchair Access Crosswalk

Accessibility

The castle grounds and walls are partially wheelchair accessible. An ADA compliant bathroom is available in the Great Hall. More information is in our FAQ's.

Finding Our Entrance

We are located at 571 Ridge Road in Helen, Georgia, USA. Look for red and white flags marking our entrance on the day of your visit (flags are only out during open hours).

 

The castle is not visible from the road and we do not yet have permanent signage up. The driveway is on the South side of Ridge Road, about half a mile from either end of the road, and is also marked with a 571 mailbox in addition to the red and white flags. After turning into our entrance, slowly proceed through the green metal gates under the watchful eye of an owl statue mounted on a cairn. Uhuburg staff will greet you and direct you to parking.
