I was excited about seeing the place again as I worked here as a teenager 15 years ago. I notice the red dungarees have been replaced. I used to feel very proud wearing it on the bus ride home! Anyway, we visited here with my 3 year old, 10 month old, my friend and her 4 year old. We took... More

Hi emzi27. Thanks for coming back to us after all these years. We actually still have some of the red dungarees in the uniform cupboard...it's surprising how many people remember and love them! It's great to hear how you still enjoyed the castle and all it's displays, and I can only apologise for the machines that didn't work. They are... More

Took our 4 year old and 21 month old. Had a full day out and although not a great deal of rides for the baby she still had lots of fun and got to go on a few with her, our son loved it all and enjoyed the rides

The castle is beautiful, expecting to be given history, seeing the rooms and get a feel for life back then but this was not the case. You see one floor and the 'theme park' is all rides for small children. Great attraction for children but for adults going without children is very disappointing!

Spent a sunny day at Watermouth castle and it was one of the best days I've had. There was so much to do we are going back again. Can recommend the water wars sling shot, although getting beaten and soaked by a girl soured my day! There are numerous cafés to snack at, we had a cream tea that was... More

We visited Watermouth castle with our 8 year old recently while staying in the area and to be honest we didn't expect much! We were pleasantly surprised and had a great day out.

We went today as the journal was running discount vouchers. This made it a good value day out,especially as several of the rides are height restricted and you pay full price below some of the restrictions. The castle itself was beautiful and the Victorian home was very interesting. The old fashioned pier games were brilliant its just a shame so... More
