Dating back to William the Conqueror the fact that this castle is still standing is a feat in itself. But if you love the English country side take a walk through Cave dale and up to the great ridge so you can see the castle from all angles - you wont be disappointed as the walk there is breathtaking

A great climb up to the castle and fantastic views from the top. This is only a small castle so will not take long to look around, but well worth a climb if you exploring Castleton and the other local attractions

This isn't the wildest attraction you'll ever see in your life and there isn't a lot to see really but it is less than a fiver so you might as well while you're in Castleton. Although the castle is historic it doesn't have a very rich history itself. The king visited once and it hasn't ever seen any military conflict.... More

We tend to seek out castles when we visit new areas so felt we had to go to this one. It is an English Heritage site, so would definitely recommend to members. For others, not sure it warrants the £4.70 per adult as the keep itself appears to be closed more than its open. We were not able to go... More

Castleton is a beautiful town so we decided to climb the Castle hill to look at the views...only to find you have to pay at the bottom...£9.50 for 2 adults!! It is a very short walk and is done in about 15minutes with nothing to see other than the views which can be seen for free at the public footpath... More

Nice walk and grounds, shame you can't go in! Kids liked the gift shop. They could have made more effort really, eg people dressed up etc.

Peveril castle stand at the top of quite a formidable hill, accessed by a pathway that weaves its way up the hillside. The ascent though quite steep is well worth it for the view that greets you at its summit. Almost 360 degree views of the valley and the village of Castleton. The ruin of the castle itself is made...

My husband and I visited Peveril Castle will in England this past May. The path was a little steep, but had benches to sit along the way with a view that was absolutely "breathtaking". I would recommend this for one of those hiking visits. Stop down in Castleton and pick up a Blue John Ring at the Jewelers. Very unique... More

It is a steep walk up to peveril castle, but the ruins at the top are well worth the visit, as is the fantastic view
