What a lovely place to visit on a sunny sunday morning. Artist's impressions of the original rooms and the excellently described commentary really helped us to imagine how people lived in the 13th century. Beautifully kept grounds. Friendly staff.

Goodrich Castle hides behind the village of Goodrich surrounded by fabulous countryside. Easy parking, a fabulous little cafe on site and you have yourself a great 2-3 hours exploring a very well maintained site.
