I visited the castle on Sunday, it was very good and very well managed but they give you free audio packages to guide you round and give you extra information which is useful, sort of. It's just very confusing and you get lost and ruin the trip. But, apart from that it is a very good unique place! Also, the... More

Very interesting castle with lovely views and lots of original features to see and explore. Good interpretation. Shame that even members have to pay for car parking!

took a friend to see this old favourite of mine, wow so much changed, the castle needs no comments as it is as always, a stunning experience and the signs posted all around make it easier to understand the ruins. My praise is for the facilities, Goodrich is not one of the biggest Castles but it has a really large... More

its a lovely castle I have visited many times, but each time I visit the price goes up and there isn't anything new. I realise that there is a certain amount of 'up keep' if that is at all possible with an old ruin but I do think its a bit above inflation. Nice views from all angles.

Anyone who likes historic buildings will love this castle. There is so much you can still access, including the "not for the faint hearted" climb to the top of the keep!

Spent the morning here had a great time. There was an Audio tour you can use for free which both my husband and myself found very interesting. Certainly will visit again the only downside was the weather which was a bit miserable ortherwise great and well worth a visit.

My second trip to Goodrich castle. Loved it. It looks like a proper castle, so the young children enjoyed it very much and the older people in the party found plenty to interest them. Perfect for a game of castle hide and seek.

English Heritage have done a great job on this site and made what was already an impressive ruin into a well presented and interpreted historic site with good access, and parking sited to avoid disturbing the ambience of the Castle.. The Castle is imposing, with massive walls and an aura of menace - Disney this is not - this was... More

As EH members we had free entry, and everyone is offered the audio guide with the entry price (although we didn't use it as we had our toddler with us! Stunning castle in a beautiful location. The views are fantastic, and even more rewarding if you climb to the top of the tower. Staff are very friendly and informative in... More
