Bit of a walk but worth it

It is quite a steep climb up the hillside to Peveril Castle from Castleton village, and there isn't much left except for a tower to walk up. The castle is only open at weekends in Winter but in any case the view from the hilltop alone is splendid.

Not even a C of a castle. Waste of money as they charge you £10 to go up the hill ! Although hill top is scenic and I like walking.

A fantastic view - well worth the steep climb up. Our 7 year old loved it. It is a ruin but you can climb into the tower up a staircase.

A really interesting visit to a historical site, with amazing views of the local area. A steep walk in places and lots of steps but well worth it.

We visited the castle after reading about it in the Manchester Evening News. It was a lovely drive through the Peak District from Manchester. To reach the castle we parked in a nearby car park as the road was closed. The walk up to the castle was really quite steep and a little slippery under foot due to damp weather.... More

We had been to Castleton before but not visited the castle. We weren't put off by the poor reviews. It was a ruin,yes, but there was lots of info about the place and pictures on boards to show you what it might have looked like. If you like this sort of thing, which I do, it can really take you...

Definitely worth a visit. A good physical workout getting to the Castle and then a very good view over Castleton when you are at the top. A lovely feel of history and you might even see Dennis the local cat while you are there. Although he didn't seem that fussed.

Not that much at the top but it is only £5.75 to get in. There is a short but steep walk to get up there but you are rewarded with a fantastic view. There are information displays and you can climb up the keep which was fun.

We visited the castle and already knew that it was a ruin, however it exceeded our expectations with the views when we got to the top of the hill. As you enter in the visitors centre there is a information area upstairs which tells you all about the history and occupants of the castle, and from there it is quite... More
