Gorey is beautiful, and the castle on the top of the hill makes for some fantastic photographic opportunities. The views from the top are fantastic, of the clear blue sea, areas of the castle below, the harbour, and some beautiful houses. I also saw some...More

We visited this castle using our 4 for 3 tourist ticket, its accessed via a steep ramp from the town square (the thin green line on the above map). It's a must on the tourist trail with plenty of information boards dotted around the castle,...More

Lovely visit in the sunshine. Excellent views and more to see than we first thought. Quite a lot of stairs, however. You need to be pretty fit to tackle them all. Saw a few lizards scampering around near the walls. Interesting portraits of the Queen.

You will certainly have to walk a lot of stairs to visit very corner of the castle, we are so pleased you made it to the top and took in the excellent views across to France. Thank you for your review.

A large castle way up on the hill. Quite a climb to the top. Impressive views when up there though. Tours are available though we did not do one. Quite an interesting castle.

The Castle was most impressive, tagging on a guided tour is not something I would often do, glad we did, learned lots. Plenty of steps but the final view was well worth it. A piece of History well worth a visit.

JP Hamon-Cole our guide/caretaker for the castle was not just informative, but brought the entire history to life with several anecdotal stories making it a very memorable experience. We would highly recommend this tour to everyone visiting Jersey, UK!

Guided tour from Daniel. Enthusiastic speaker. Learned lots. Probably saw more of the castle than I would have alone as I’m very wary of circular staircases. But I followed him without thinking about it some interesting artworks around too. Great way to spend a couple...More
