We visited the castle last Sat for their Medieval Event, and we weren't disappointed. A lovely walk up to the castle, and then amazing views. We were very lucky as the sun was shining and we could sit and watch the Knights fight in a tournament and watch the children take part in activities. A very well organised event that... More

Perched over Castleton, Peveril Castle offers a great view of Castleton and the surrounding hills. There's a nice keep and outer walls still fairly intact atop its high naturally defensible position. It's a pretty vertical hike up a path to the castle, so keep that I mind, but that didn't bother or slow our kids who happily ran up the... More

Having already climbed Mam Tor the same day my legs were complaining at the thought of yet more climbing, but my love of castles won out. The entrance fee is reasonable as is the little extra for the guide book. Lots of information and photos to help bring the castle to life. The Keep of the castle is the best... More

I was a bit put off by having to pay to get in, there is no other way to see the site. The walk up was a challenge but there were lovely views. The ruined Castle wasn't much to see and would have been a bit dismal in the rain.

A steep (and relatively short) walk up the hill is rewarded with a beautiful panorama looking north towards Losehill. The ruined castle still contains much of the original keep as well as the outer perimeter walls. There are numerous info points detailing the castle's history as well as points of interest. Don't forget to look over the south side for... More

The views were fantastic. The climb for anyone unfit may be difficult, but it can't be changed, this is just where the castle is!

Second time around in Castleton I finally got to visit the castle (first visit the sign had been pointed in the wrong direction so by the time I found the castle it was time to leave!). There is a VERY long and steep zig-zag path up to the castle so a very arduous climb, but there are plenty of seats... More

Really lovely views once up there, but it is a bit of a steep walk up. there is a set of steps going down to the bottom of the tower once in the tower, but the light sensor is a bit lower down, so used my phone light to guide myself down. interesting ruins with fantastic views

local history you can touch, the hill up to the castle is not for the feint hearted but the views across the valley once you've reached the castle are worth the effort
