This castle is dog friendly. To get there, we had a challenging walk up a very steep slope. Wonderful views at the top and an interesting site. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

The ruins of Peveril Castle, located atop a hill, offered us great views as well as a calorie-burning walk up the hill. It was a steady climb and the path up had several benches for us to rest and catch our breath - catch our breath not because of just the walk, but also the views! The castle overlooks the... More

A ruin that overlooks Castleton. Dog friendly like a lot of the English heritage sites. A small display with historic information of the castle and surrounds. Small place but worth it if you have membership, otherwise it's £15 for a family

I visited the castle with a friend, entry was around £5+ so not expensive. There is a disabled lift in the entrance but I fear that you would need to be superman to push a wheelchair to the top, it just isn't suitable. However there are many benches every few yards to sit and rest on but the climb is... More

Built in the 11th Century by Sir William Peveril, a cohort of William Bastardus, Peveril Castle holds a spectacular and imposing location. It has an interesting history, which is worth learning about, but apart from the walls, little remains except the empty shell of the Keep. If you want to have a look at these, and admire the views, it's... More

Peveril Castle unfortunately is not the most interesting castle in the area. Its worth a visit if you have an English heritage membership or if you are in the area but I wouldn't make a special trip just to see it. It'd be a great spot for a picnic but the climb up to it is no walk in the... More

If the weather is nice then this is well worth a visit. It's a good 10-15 minute walk up the hill from the English Heritage office but there are benches all along the walk so plenty of opportunity to rest if you need to. Fabulous views over Castleton from the top - lovely. Customer service was excellent from the two... More

Great views and amazing old castle. The climb up was rather steep and winding. A bit expensive but the views were worth it.

Well worth a walk, great views, a sneak view of the history of the area, a great achievement so many years ago to build this.
