“Wonderful views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Castle Hill is Huddersfield's most noticeable landmark, and I love it. Absolutely wonderful views of the town and the moors for miles!

“Wonderful place, one of my favorites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

If you have never been to the top of castle hill, you have never lived, its like being near to heaven, like being on top of the world, you can see for absolutely miles, castle is open in the summer for you to go up inside. Children love the freedom to run around, lots of different level areas to explore.dogs are in their element. Great for kite flying. often breezy up there but very stimulating. Ggreat for family picnics in the summer or just a lovely walk anytime of year. Look up the history of Castle Hill, will make your visit more interesting.

“Really nice place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Cute place with lovely view in the day time really nice place to go on a romantic walk. However it does get very windy up there!! But one of the best places for flying kites. Also I wouldn't recommend going at night, it does get a bit dodgy.

“A must visit place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Just go for the view and how far you can see. Need to know it`s history? Not time to tell you all some really fascinating facts. Contact K.M.C. or Google it! Fab!

“History dating to early Saxons”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

The castle was put there to celebrate the reign of Victoria. However this was a settlement dating back to Roman and Saxon times. The view is stunning. The only disappointment is that there was a pub and coach house here dating back 2 -300 years but the property and every stone was removed illegally in the 90s, what a crime!
