On my arrival to Castleton, the stunning ruin can be seen high up on the hill. I parked in a car park by the Castleton tourist information centre for a very reasonable fee. There is also a pretty little stream running by the side of it which I wish I had more time to investigate. There is a small entrance... More

When I was younger this was free but now there is a charge. There is quite a climb to the castle and there isn't much to see when you get up there. The view is very good. Will probably not go again now there is a chrarge.

This is one of many attractions in Castleton. We visited with a toddler and we didn't have too much trouble getting to the top of the hill. It's not a difficult climb at all for an adult but allow yourself plenty of time if you're going with a small child. We also took a buggy with us and apart from... More

It was an interesting visit, lovely views over Castleton, with local history boards. But quite expensive really for a 20 min visit.

I visited here when I was younger and had good memories so my husband and I decided to take our 3 year old son. It is quite a strenuous climb to the top if you have dodgy knees like myself but the views are beautiful. We had a lot of fun rolling down the hill at the top and our... More

Peveril Castle was beautiful, mostly for the wonderful views from the top. You walk up a moderately steep incline (which is plainly visible from the bottom of the hill in Castleton). Once you get to the top, you enter the walls, which are not in good condition, and can continue into the Keep. It is a single building, with two... More

The place is a very small Keep. We went when they were having a Medieval Knights day and it was a beautiful sunny day. There were some activities for children with the staff in costumes making it fun for them. It is a steep walk up and a lovely view when you get there. I am happy I saw it... More

This is an English Heritage site, Well equipped and developed. It is a small castle with a single keep and the remnants of a curtain wall, it was primarily a hunting lodge, When we visited there were over a dozen actors playing knights etc. Ideal for young kids. (they are not always there). For a family of 4 this is... More
