Very pleased with our visit to this stunning castle. We assumed we would be able to see it from the road,...but couldn't, the car park with ample parking....not there, the entrance building with friendly staff and a yummy cheese board from the cafe with outdoor seating... Nope, still no castle! I'm guessing that's partly why it was heavily fort over... More

Well worth a visit - my husband and 1, along with our baby son and dog visited this charming castle on a sunny September friday. We were pleasantly suprised by how much you got for your money. Very reasonably priced, fantastic (and free!) audio tour, wonderful castles and grounds. Very clean and tidy - not the most accesible but we... More

Never thought of visiting Goodrich Castle before despite passing though a few times in the past on my travels as I didn't really know what was there. So, with a view of making the most of our Saturday and the favourable weather that remains I, my wife and 9 year old son planned a day trip with a mind of... More

This is a real "must see" castle, it's fantastic. I guess it is often overlooked, but well worth going to visit. Situated in a lovely position on a hill overlooking the Wye valley and is much, much bigger than the guide book suggests. The audio guide is very good, doesn't try to be humorous but tells the story of the... More

Stopped at Goodrich on the way to The Forest Of Dean as it had been many years since I was last here. Doesn't disappoint, plus there is a great visitors centre and café with outdoor seating. We had a picnic in the grounds before taking the short five minute walk up to the Castle it's self. Very interesting and a... More

Much better than we thought it would be from the website. It is in a lovely position and there was more to the castle than we anticipated. The audio tour was informative and the views from the top of the keep, after a steep spiral climb were great.

An enormous castle nestling in the countryside. Our approach gave us no clue as to the size of the castle until we were upon it. It is startling in its size, location and features. We used the audio guides for the full experience. Friendly and helpful staff and good coffee at the cafe. Tremendous

A surprising amount of fun. Not at all accessible if you have difficulty walking or climbing but good fun for children and adults alike.
