Fantastic views!

We visited on a very rainy afternoon so we got wet for our troubles. However the view from the top was well worth the wetting!

Small fee to pay to visit castle ruins and then few switch backs to climb before reaching the castle (castles were after all built on hilltops and cliff for protection). This one was left to ruin in the 16th century but now looked after by the folks you pay to get in. If you are lucky you'll get paid a... More

A bit of a walk up to the Castle ( which we could see from our Hotel room) but well worth it for the fantastic views. Good information points which do no overload you. Reasonable entrance fees. Well worth an hour of your time.

An ancient monument managed by English Heritage. It is at the top of steep hill and is not for the unfit. The castle itself is a ruin and there is little left but the views from the top are amazing. On a clear day you can see for miles and there is a table at the top which shows what... More

Steep climb but well worth it on a sunny day. Felt the admission charges were high. Good views of the Hope Valley.

A small, apparently not-too significant castle in the Peak district. It is very tricky to get up the hill to the main section of the castle - a very steep, winding path that anyone with disabilities would probably struggle to get up to! But there are many benches on this path to give you a break! The castle itself is... More

Having spent half a day wandering around the Burbage Valley on a beautiful sunny Sunday in mid-September, and wondering why I had left it so long to see this spectacular landscape again, I took advantage of another sunny weekend to revisit another one of my favourite places - Peveril Castle. As a geologist, with specialist interests in the restoration of... More

A wonderful walk up to the castle which any able-bodied person should be able to accomplish easily, and once there an absolutely stunning location with the ruins of Peveril Castle. The site is historically fascinating and English Heritage keep it immaculately - the small entrance fee is well worth it to preserve such a priceless historical site. We were lucky... More
