It's nice to go somewhere like this where you can actually try things on like the armour & other dress up clothes. Great value for money.

We visited with children aged 2-10 and the castle had things to keep them all amused. The children's searching activities were good fun and there were so many things for them to touch and do. Very interactive. The castle is also set in a beautiful park with a good play area and crazy golf.

Love this castle a lot, it's very strange to enter a world of history but be surrounded with views of tower block flats....but if you try to block this out and get into the atmosphere it's truly wonderful, cost around £30 for four adults and two children which I didn't think was bad, the staff were so lovely and we...

One of the themed events held over the year, the fairies theme proved extremely popular with children young and old. Children loved dressing up, listening to stories and finding the answers to the puzzles sheets. Highly recommended.

One concession and two children of 8 & 10 - a total of £15 admission, which was good value. However, felt there was too much 'messing about' at the entrance which caused a queue - Where have you come from today, what is your postcode, was it our website that made you decide to visit today etc. Once in though,...

Visited Tamworth Castle recently with the family. Unlike other similar destinations the site was interactive allowing children to dress up. Staff were also dressed in appropriate historical clothing which added to the visit. There was also a park nearby outside the castle grounds which was good for our children. Would recommend a visit. A castle family ticket was £21. Thank... More

Seems small on the outside but enormous once inside. Would recomment a visit with the kids. Hands on experience which my 10 year old really enjoyed as well as my 16 year old. Helpful and cheery staff.

Great day had by all loads of great activities around the castle for all ages we had a 6 year old and a 2 year old with us and both loved it, however we were nearly ready to give up with the long queue to get in. Not suitable for buggies but they have an area for you to leave... More
