As English Heritage members we have visited Goodrich Castle on a few occasions and have never left disappointed. Well presented information boards and a really informative audio guide (would recommend) make this a really interesting castle to explore. It's very well preserved with staircases and towers still intact and has lovely views over the countryside. The staff in the shop... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Goodrich despite the drizzle. Not a castle we had heard of so didn't know what to expect. The staff were very friendly and enthusiastic. The whole visit was made worthwhile by the use of the audio tours which were provided in the entrance fee and these really brought the castle to life for our... More

This is a spectacular castle to visit. The information boards are easy to read and there is an audio guide available, should you wish. There are plenty of steps and stairs for those able to climb for amazing views over the countryside and for the younger folk to hare up and down for fun!. It is well worth a visit.... More

A great family day out. Lots of spiral staircases leading up to towers and down to dungeons. Not a massive foot print but lots of the castle is intact or has been restored so lots of places for the kids to explore. There are information boards telling you about the castle so also great for history lovers.

This castle is situated such that it is not readily seen from the road. We parked and walked up to the information centre without even catching a glimpse of the castle. But although well 'hidden' it is a fantastic attraction, and possibly one of the best features is the self-guided audio tour which is provided at no additional charge. Not... More

Spectacular monument to a bygone era. Even if you aren't into history, one cannot help but be amazed at the scale of this ancient castle. Even better on a sunny day with your picnic!

Very complete castle with excellent audio guide . I learnt a lot about living in a castle. Gentleman In shop selling tickets was very knowledgable and helpful. Longish walk to castle but help for the infirm. Unusual cards in shop and pristine toilets!

We enjoyed our visit here but the castle is quite small in comparison to others we have visited. Therefore, an hour or two is really the expected time to spend here. You have to pay £1 for parking. It was busy when we visited and they opened up an overflow car park. The staff were friendly and informative. We decided... More

With the audio a very enjoyable visit, but it would have been a bit dull without it. The views over the fields to the river were lovely. Kids got a bit bored!
