On the hill overlooking the town in the centre of Clitheroe, this is absolutely essential when you are in the area. Lovely walks up to and around the castle, a cafe, displays and contemporary art exhibitions

It is free to walk around the castle with a fee for the museum. However the museum is well set out and whilst very child friendly there is still a great amount of interesting detail for adults.

a nice little stop on a day out. Not much castle but a good museum with regular hunts for the children, pleasant way to pass an hour or so.

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.

The castle is small but the view from the keep is incredible! Interesting to have a look around and also a Museum that is quite interesting and the panoramic views of the town and valley are worth it

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.
