    A Kiwi Castle??

    The Castle Pamela
    1 more image

    At the top of the hill that is Tiraus main street, a brown tourist info sign points the way to the Castle. A castle in Tirau? So you follow the sign, which leads down a side road, where another sign points the way, then another, then another. Finally you arrive at the fairytale Castle Pamela!
    The Castle Pamela is a fairly recent construction (the local information leaflet describes it as Medievel, but the concrete has a modern feel!) and the couple that run it have created it a 20th century Kiwi folly, which now houses New Zealands largest doll and toy collection.
    Well worth a visit, especially if you have children with you.

    Private collection of Dolls, Toys and Royal Albert China well displayed in this unique castle built to house these.
    Situated in a really nice spot overlooking lovely rolling farmland, not far from the centre of town.
    They have a nice large Cafe with nice food and drinks, including Devonshire Teas. The theme is regal and you can buy trinkets if you desire.
