My daughter got married there and it was a wonderful experience. The service was perfect and the views were stunning. Would recommend it even for a day out.

Went up the Castle earlier this week as part of an East Lancs tour. It was great to go back to my roots and show them to my friends. There is a great 360 degree view taking in Pendle Hill, Kemple End and numerous Lake District hills in the distance. It looked gorgeous in the morning sunshine. The statue of... More

This small castle tower is a real gem too see views of the surrounding countryside. We were lucky to have a great clear day with the weather and the views all around were excellent. However what are planners thinking when they allow a huge chimney from a cement factory to wreck a wonderful vista!

We visited the castle and museum as a wet weather venue suggestion . Was a shame as the panoramic views would have been amazing. We got very misty atmospheric views instead. The keep is free to visit as are the parkland gardens, maze etc. We paid full price £4.10 each to go to the museum which was enjoyable. The story... More

Spent a flcouple of hours here, really helpful staff, brilliant with the kids keeping them on track for the trail in the museum. Castle itself has amazing views in all directions but that's about it, the museum makes up for that though, absolutely crammed with information and hands on stuff for the kids, never seen so many dressing up costumes...

A wide ranging collection of interesting items. The museum is geared up for visits by children and on the day we were there quite a few were taking the tour - they all seemed to be fascinated by the museum. At just over £3 it represented good value. It also had a nice cafe.

My son and his fiancé got married at the Castle and the day was wonderful, the staff were efficient and friendly, the setting was stunning for the photographs, fortunately the weather co-operated and the sun shone. The wedding was in the restaurant and this worked really well, parking is a bit of an issue so remember this if you are... More

The signs say its one of the smallest castles, and it is, once you walk up to the top of the hill there is really only one 'keep' - there are some buildings to the side which are now a museum and visitor center. Its right in the middle of the town so its only a 10-15 min walk... up.... More

A rather basic visit this place. I have been to free museums which were ten times more interesting, involving and fun. We completed the trail with the kids and thankfully we did because it made the visit better. The toilets were clean and the gift shop well stocked. I won't be returning again as once is enough to feel you... More
