English Heritage, so worth the money as they do a great job. Castle high up on the hill in Castleton, it is a trek up the hill but so worth the hike, even in the rain. Worth a visit just for the view, would be...More

Having read the previous reviews we were prepared for a bit of a hike, we were surprised to find the walk up to the Castle not as steep as we expected, there were elderly people with sticks managing the walk and there are a couple...More

Locals say the walk was a bit hard, but only moderate fitness is necessary. Its doesn't take 10 minutes to get to the top. The "castle" is only the ruins of "the Keep" but the views are sensational.

Don't be hood-winked! The Castle looks great - Very LOTR on the outcrop, high up! But really that's about all there is, The climb up is exhausting, especially for the encumbered. Once there you have a tower and a History which has little to do...More

A gentle walk but can get slippery sensible shoes needed. Go later or early in the day for a peaceful yomp. Only problem is with the minority who feel it's acceptable to litter and dump bags of dog poop...... grrrrrrr

It's a good walk to get to the top, don't panic though, there are a couple of benches part way up to sit on. As castles go, there's not much too it, quite easily look at it all in a couple of minutes. But the...More

Yes, it is quite a steep hill to climb to get to the top, but it is worth the effort as the views from the there are magnificent (weather permitting). The history is quite interesting and there are plenty of information boards to read. There...More

We were lucky with the weather for our climb up to the castle. It's a very stiff climb indeed, something to factor in before you hand over your money. However, once you're up there the 360 degree views are totally breathtaking. The information boards tell...More

Hi I don't know but if you look up an ordnance survey map of the area it will give you the heights you are looking.

Hi, I would say approximately 90 minutes will do. There's not much to see in the castle but the views are great. It's quite a steep walk up to the castle but you can take your time getting up there (there are some benches... More
