Great place with lovely scenery, not as many rides for kids over 5 as initially thought. Unfortunately quite a lot of the rides were closed as it was out of season.

The review I am following on this attraction pretty much says everything I would about the place - it truly is British eccentrics shown off in such mind boggling randomness that you can't quite get your head around! Everywhere you look there is something jarringly unexpected that you just have to laugh. Although it is indeed a very old place... More

Beautiful surroundings and some very educational things to see inside the castle itself. However the grounds are huge behind the castle which are not immediately evident from the front so theres plenty to walk around. Not sure it would be a place to go in bad weather though as much of it is out in the open. The only complaints... More

Went here with wife and 8 yo daughter. We easily spent 6 hours here. I wouldn't recommend it for teenagers, as the rides are aimed at younger kids. Top tip- take a pocket load of 2p pieces, and silver for the vintage slot machines. Lookout for vouchers in flyers too, we saved 20pc on entry fee. Probably bedtime avoided on... More

From the moment we enterered the castle we were enjoying ourselves, there was lots to see and do, old fashioned arcades and interesting pieces of history. We went through the dungeons which was good fun. We watched the water fountain show and thought it was very good. We then enjoyed the rest of the day on the rides and just... More

I first went to watermouth castle when I was 5 years old and I loved it then. I now have two kids of my own and I took them and my partner on 2/4/15. Still as I remember absolutely brilliant and plenty of new rides. Well worth the money. If you go while on holiday make it your first trip... More

This is a great place for a family day out with young children. There is enough to keep adults entertained and more than enough variety to keep the younger visitors occupied and interested all day. Good range of places to eat or grab an ice cream that are reasonably priced. Those passing by may just think it is a regular... More

Hi ddtowe. Many thanks for taking time to review us. I'm glad to see you found enough to keep you busy all day, that's very much our aim. It's always a difficult one for us to make people realise that we have a full park hidden away in the valley behind the Castle. We like to try and keep in... More
