We travelled with our extended family to explore the history of this part of the world and had a thoroughly brilliant day, grandchildren exploring every nook and dungeon of the castle and scaling the heights of the towers. We enjoyed cake and coffee in the restaurant and went home with swords and shields to remember the day with.

Goodrich Castle is an English Heritage site. Very well preserved with a lot to see and great sign-boards that give really good information. Great views - especially if you are brave enough to clamber to the top of the keep tower! You can walk the battlements and see the only surviving mortar cannon in the country "Roaring Meg". If you...

Spent an afternoon here with my grandchildren whilst visiting Ross-on-Wye. We were lucky with the weather and thoroughly enjoyed exploring this beautiful castle. The gift shop looks good but we didn't linger as the children were full of beans and keen to get going! Great fun for all the family, lovely views of Herefordshire countryside and plenty of room for... More

Half an hour away from where I live , so a perfect distance for a midday stroll with my family of four , however despite its great views/location and beautiful scenery , it's coffee shop lack's in space. as I do enjoy a luxury hot chocolate on a chilly day :)

Being local I often walk the dog up to the castle when it's closed. The views over the river wye and down to Kerne Bridge are stunning. There is good parking and a modern cafe where you can buy gifts and have a lovely tea, cakes etc. The cafe is only open at the same time as the castle. Nothing... More

Visited here on 28th December on our way to Wales. Was well worth the visit, the castle is almost fully intact in some areas. There are plenty of illustrated information boards here as well describing the function of each part of the castle. Make sure you climb to the top of the keep for commanding views over the countryside, although... More

Goodrich castle is one of the many border castles built between England and wales ... initial impressions are that this is a very ruined old stronghold but taking the talking guide headphones and the history will come to life... the voices and lives from the past leap into your imagination. it is a very impressive location too... above the river...
