This is an amazing place, we arrived at lunch time and ate before we entered. As it turns out it didn't leave us enough time to fully appreciate the site and we will have to go back again to see what we missed. The web site nad brochures advise a minimum of 3 hours to do the whole site but... More

We arrived just after 1 and started ...... It's not for the feint hearted!!! But absolutely worth every penny - we chose the long 3hr walk 😖 and we (adults) felt it !! We stopped for a drink and an ice- cream at the top (views are stunning) - photographers paradise. At the bottom - we sat to recover with... More

A spectacular day out with some stunning views. Well the climb to the top through the caves (don't forget your torch). Only comment is that some of the signage could be clearer but a minor issue.

We recently went to Hawkstone Park and had a great day out, the views where fab and the walk was lovely. We had ours on a Wowcher deal so that was even better otherwise alittle pricey to pay full price to walk around all day ..

My husband and I visited here early September and were lucky enough to pick a glorious warm sunny day. Had picked up some discounted entry tickets off Wowcher so this made it very good value. A bit of a queue to get in but the girl on the desk was friendly and helpful. Had a quick coffee in the café... More

Visited this place with family and 2 dogs, be prepared to walk a lot, lots to see and explore and climb. The place has caves to explore and monuments to look at . It was great that we could take the dogs,but you must keep them on their leads. Plenty of place's to sit and have a picnic.

We spent 3 hours completing the longest walk and we were glad we chose this walk over the other suggested shorter walks as we would have missed out on so much. The walks are well signposted and not too strenuous unless you can't do stone steps of which there are a lot. It was a 90 mile round trip for... More

Visited on 06/09/2014, a warm but overcast morning. A great welcome at the entrance, and then 4 hours or so walking around the amazing park and follies. Absolutely stunning scenery, walks that through up new scenery and obstacles at every turn (some of the steps are very narrow), never sure what's around the next corner or over the brow of... More

It is generally a lovely place to visit - the wardens/rangers do a really good job in making it a fun, well-thought out day out. However, the reception welcome wasn't great and also the cafe is massively overpriced! £6 for a sandwich with hardly any filling and a couple of crisps is not good value. The serving staff were mixed... More

Fabulous place to spend a good half day. About 3 hours walking but with lots of places and nooks and crannies to keep the kids entertained such as caves and a tower to climb. Lovely views. Wear good shoes though as lots of uneven paths and rocky parts.
