History of Kryal
A castle fit for a King!

Kryal Castle emerged from the vision of one man – Keith Ryall.

As a young boy Keith received a gift from his uncle who had returned from World War 2. It was a captured enemy sword. Keith instantly became enraptured by it, making his declaration that he would one day build his own castle and become a king!

As a young man Keith continued to follow his dream and avidly learnt all he could of the medieval era. He learnt to fashion armour and swords in the shed behind his house in Creswick, and as the demand for his work grew, so too did his need for an ‘appropriate’ place to work from…

In 1972, Keith began building the castle, which formally opened 2 years later primarily as a tourist attraction but also as an educational, conference and function facility with ‘royal’ accommodation and a wedding chapel.
