We were in Clitheroe and decided to visit the castle. And we would have done, had any entrance been signposted. We just couldn't find the way in, so cannot really rate the attraction.

It is well worth the steep walk up to the castle ruins. Free to walk around the ruins. Great views. Excellent kid's interactive park. Good family attraction.

A short but steep climb from the shops. Free to walk the walls, small charge for the museum, little art gallery, interactive play space for the children, nice cafe with indoor/outdoor seating and fabulous views

Free to visit. It is a small castle. Incredibly interesting views over the town and the Ribble Valley from the ramparts. Decent little cafe/restaurant with a pleasant outdoor seating area.
