Clitheroe Castle offers something for most family members, a real hike to the top, an excellent museum, the Atrium Cafe which offers simple food at very reasonable prices, great views over the town and surrounding countryside, and the park has a good playground for younger children. The Castle park is the town's park with nice paths to wander among a... More

I took two of my grandchildren (aged 8 and 11) for an afternoon trip to Clitheroe Castle. Well, it isn't really a castle, more just a keep. But the safe climb up (good path and steps with handrail) was worth it for the views over Clitheroe and towards the witches on Pendle Hill. Back down, and a visit to the... More

We popped into Clitheroe Castle as we happened to be in the area. Its a dinky little thing, with great views. The views over to Pendle Hill are breathtaking. The actual castle is a little keep, but there is a gallery, a museum and a cafe. The gallery has a local photographers work at the moment, which were lovely and... More
