“Fantastic view, so-so museum.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

The castle (more a fortress) is in good state and is quite big an impressive. You can walk through the inside for free, and to the outer limits of the castle, offering you a great view of Dieppe. Only a small portion of the castle is used as the museum, which on its own is not very interesting.

The free visit is worth it, a) because of the impressive structure and b) the view.

The best thing to do in Dieppe. The castle offers a fantastic panoramic view and the museum is nice.

“Dull”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

A rather dull restored castle overlooking the town of Dieppe. No where near as good as the castles in the U.K,where the majestic ruins tell of fantastic stories,this just reeks of a rather desperate attempt to get people visiting.

“Worth the climb”

Really nice atmosphere and quite interesting. The views are great from the grassed areas at either end of the chateau.

“Interesting but..........”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

A pleasent little museum with a good display of ivory artifacts, but I did find it dragging a bit after a while.. It's probably just me though, I'm not a museum person. I was quite saddened by the ivory. Beautiful objects, but not quite as inspiring as the elephant itself.
