The ruins of the castle offer a great view. The remains of the tower and the castle wall are quite well preserved. From time to time there are some events like re-enactment. The only problem is a car park - area is very popular amongs tourists and the town only tiny.

Even though I have visited the Castle last year, still I remember it's interior and the view from the top platform. It is worth paying the admission price and going inside. You will be delighted, and so will be your children.

Very informative, a bit if a trek to the castle but well worth the effort, plenty of seats on the way up, on reaching the castle the views over Castleton and the surrounding area are stunning.

This place closes far too early, they were not going to let us in even though we were there before last admissions! Then we saw the prices, I was so disappointed. I love history and the fact that we were unable to see it was upsetting. Normally I would never have any issues with the price but after the way... More

Ok so first thing you need to know is that the climb to the castle is very steep. Next thing you need to know is that the ruins are not very large. Also to make the most of them get a guide book. Though there are signs there's no audio guide here you are going to have to do the... More

Thank the lord there are so many benches on the way up the hill to the castle. Would not have attempted the climb had I realised as im a lazy b##ger but once I committed and with my husband shouting rude remarks behind me I got to the top. Only to find even more stairs on offer, which I declined.... More

The walk up the hill to the castle is a serious workout for calves and thighs, but the view from the top is more than worth it. Amazing scenery right across the dale and down to Castleton below. The castle is a ruin, of course, but it's well looked after by English Heritage and you can venture into the keep,... More

The way up to the castle from the village centre takes you along a lane to the castle grounds entrance and box office. After paying the entrance fee and going through the shop area, there's a reasonably steep zig-zag stone stepped path up to the main castle grounds. Luckily, for us oldies who'd forgotten we had calf muscles and knee... More

Very steep walk to the top but the great views make up for it with steep gorges on two sides. Interesting history. Staff were friendly and welcoming.
