It's a nice little park area with the 'castle' on top of a lot of stairs. Wouldn't particularly recommend a visit unless the bandstand is open.

From the castle you get a real in site into history of the local area and a view of Tamworth. I treated me pregnant wife for a walk to the top which she managed although be aware it is a historic buildings so no wheelchair access. Its reasonable value at £7 per an adult but I would pay anything more... More

The Castle it's a well run beautifully maintained place to visit. Apart from the usual exhibits of arms and armour, and well presented rooms of many periods, there is a Tamworth's history exhibition which is of great interest. With dressing up for children, brass rubbing, and a walk outside around the walls, it is worth taking a look at.
