Overview

With spectacular views over Derbyshire, the fairy-tale Stuart mansion, Bolsover Castle, was designed to entertain and impress. Its reputation for revelry lives on as we now entertain you and your family. Wander the lavish rooms of the Little Castle, explore the romantic ruined terrace range, and delight in the views from the wall walk. Start your visit in the exhibition in the Riding House then run wild in extensive grounds (and fun play area).

Set in wonderful grounds with spectacular views of the Derbyshie countryside sits Bolsover Castle ( or should it be Little Castle as a sign suggests). There is something here for everyone including a playground for the youngsters.

The views from the Castle walls were the highlight of our visit. The audio guides were good but it was difficult to determine the route we needed to take to line up with the guides. A few direction arrows would be helpful. There is a...More
