Situated in the picturesque Castleton village in hope valley in the peak district, the castle can be seen from miles around and seems to loom over the village. Car parking is available in Castleton village and is operated via a ticket machine, £1.60 for 2 hours up to £4 for all day. It is then only a couple of minutes... More

Finally got to the top after a very tired 6yo daughter senery was excellent but castle was a bit naff. Plus kids were running riot up there. No control from parents.

Used to be free. Now the "visitor centre" aka shoddy keepsake and entrance fee collection point means a potential interesting historical site is out of reach to most pockets. Furthemore, Castleton is a beautiful town with strict planning regulations. Who thought it was a good idea to plant the eyesore visitor centre here? It is a crime!

I have to say I was a little disappointed, I was just expecting more. Staff were freindly, and it was nice meeting Dennis the cat! The shop was nice and tidy, and the museum was well presented, albeit very small. There is a toilet, and I would suggest you use it before continuing! The walk up to the castle remains... More

Great little museum at the entrance of this castle with loos, very handy. But then the walk up,its steep but well worth it as the views are wonderful. Take a drink with you sit at the top and relax. Not a lot left of the castle but fantastic history

Good value for money. Enjoyable exploring. Stunning views and scenery. Lots of steps so require good strong walking legs although they do have strategically placed seating. Nice little shop although a little pricey

We visited Pevril Castle with our two sons aged 9 and 12 yrs, who had an ' awesome' day, apparently!!! They loved running up the path to the castle and really got into the spirit of things during the re-enactments! The hand made bow & arrows were a great hit and we enjoyed our ginger wine! The views from the... More

We decided on the morning to have a close look at the castle. It is an English Heritage site and opened at 10:00. It costs adults about £5 each with a gifted option, with a gift shop and a small interesting display before starting the assent (I would recommend using the loo on the first floor before leaving the building...

The steep walk up to the castle is well worth it for the views. The information boards are informative and even in the rain it was well worth the trek. Friendly staff in the shop.only one toilet but at least there was one.There was wine tasting, jams and chutneys too.It was great to try before you buy!
