Built in 1852, Whitby Castle overlooks the Long Island Sound and the 18th fairway of the Rye Golf Club. This real Tudor castle is open to the public for à la carte dining and serves as the clubhouse for the Rye Golf Club. The castle's interior contains beautifully decorated dining areas, reception rooms, a bridal suite, a well appointed bar and elegant ballrooms. Its restaurant serves eclectic American cuisine like steaks, grilled entrees and seafood. Catering is available on- and offsite, so even when you're not spending time at the castle, you can still enjoy a feast fit for royalty. Whitby castle is a popular setting for bar and bat mitzvahs, corporate events and weddings, and its reception rooms are available for private parties, cocktail parties and special events.
