Very good Attraction

I was here for a look around there isn't much to look at except loads of ruins but still worth the views from the front of the castle

If you are in Castleton, Peveril Castle almost a must-visit - but don't expect much because there is not much left of this ruin. It is beautifully situated overlooking the town and you get a lovely view once up there. Some reviewers complained about the steepness of the climb - but unless one is very elderly or disabled, it should... More

A pleasant walk to view this historical medieval ruin. The view of the surrounding landscape is beautiful particularly to the rear of the castle. Looking around the ruin takes no more than 20 minutes, with a lot of historical information boards on the way up to keep you occupied. However the entry fee was expensive for what can be over...

Tad pricey for whats actually there but hey its great to see sites like this being preserved and used . Quite a walk up not for the morbidly fat but plenty benches to rest on. Lovely views from the top.

The walk up very nearly killed me! But WOW!!! WHAT A VIEW! The castle itself is small but perfectly formed... far from one of the most impressive specimens I've seen but nice to look at all the same.

English heritage members so popped in for a visit. Very nice staff and dog friendly. Interesting ruins, pleased we got the guide book to make the most of it. Would of been nice to have an audio tour like some of the other sites. It could of been brought to life a little more.

There is only the ground floor and 1 st floor ruins remaining and be mindful if you are afraid of heights as it is bit of a climb

My second visit to Peveril castle. I took my Mum and the dog, and we had a fantastic time. The price is reasonable to get in, about £6 each. The walk up to the castle is lovely, and the views get even more breath-taking the further you go. Luckily, there are benches all the way up, when the climb gets... More

You need to be fit to get up here. There are Plenty of seats to rest on way up but still felt it was quite a pull on the knees and legs

We had an afternoon in Castleton and decided to explore the Castle. The Castle is accessed from the village through the gift shop. To access the castle you need to walk up a steep path which switches back and forth and can prove to be quite challenging. Make sure you wear suitable footwear to make the climb to the top.... More
