Spent an afternoon at Peveril Castle during a long weekend in the Peak District. Being an English heritage site, it's a fiver to get in to a ruin, which seems wrong as a member of the National trust where you get (in my opinion) better value for money. That said, we had a good time there, in a place with... More

To the people who gave this site a bad review, may I just say the following? Yes, it's a steep climb to the castle - it's a castle, which, predominantly, most castles ARE on high points! Yes, it's a ruin for the most part - think about it...it is around one thousand years old - what, pray, are buildings like... More

Of course the castle is on a big hill .. it's a castle! But being English Heritage members is a blessing as we actually went to this castle twice last week!! It's got some wonderful history and the view up here is worth it. You'll notice a walk behind the castle - we did this also & it's extremely brilliant... More

We drove all the way to this castle only to be met with a hike up the hill to get to the castle. We are members of English heritage but it wasn't clearly explained in the guide that it is up hill.Very dissapointed that this venue isn't clearly explained.The parking is in the main town if you can get a...

Allow a couple of hours for this attraction. The walk up to the top is steep but made via a very helpful zig-zagged path. There are several areas to sit along the way if you need to rest. The views are amazing both on the way up and at the top. The ruins are small but the effort is worthwhile.... More

We enjoyed our visit here although the price seemed a bit steep for what it was. It doesn't take long at all to look around. There are some lovely views from the top however.

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
