Make sure you borrow the recorded guides. It made the visit so much more interesting. The castle is a mix of intact parts and ruins. Great to explore if a bit breezy!

Stunning castle that dominates the Walkworth skyline, and can be seen from miles around. The main spire looks beautiful from Amble as the sun sets over it. As an attraction, theres a fair bit to do but as with all old castles it depends if...More

Such a beautiful castle, part ruin, but there are parts you can still see intact, ideal for kids as they can explore and climb. Will certainly be back.

Adults are £5.80, children between 5-15 are £3.40, and a family (2+3) is £15.00. The Concession rate is just barely a concession at £5.20. If you have an English Heritage membership, entrance is free. I hope you enjoy it!
