Visited this small but interesting castle standing over an ancient market town. The views, museum and cafe make it well worth a visit.

We visited today with my 6 year old granddaughter. The castle is free to visit as it is only a shell. Lovely views from there, looking out over Clitheroe and Pendle. There is a cafe selling snacks, toast, cakes, soup. I was pleased that they did gluten free toast or sandwiches. We also went in the museum which had a... More

The little ones loved exploring the castle and us adults loved the views! We went round the museum very reasonable £4.10 each and free for children. There was... More

The weather was horrible and my friends and I were doing a treasure hunt which took us around Clitheroe and the castle which was great as we got to see more of the place whilst doing the treasure hunt. The castle is set in lovely grounds and I would prob go back to see more when the weather is better.

We visited with a 6 and 4 year old and an extremely temperamental toddler. The castles keep is well preserved and there's a walk way around the exterior, a free play space is situated at the base of the keep which has a few bits of modern play equipment (designed for imaginative play). The cafe basically sells cake, sandwiches, jacket... More

We took a group of enthusiastic young people to visit the Castle yesterday. The youngest (14yr olds) were admitted free and we got a special deal for a party booking for the rest of us. The exhibition is worth the entrance fee and interesting for a wide age range. A lot of writing but also interactive displays, educational games and... More

It is well worth the climb to the top as the views are magnificent. The museum is good value and the cafe has delicious cakes.
