“Interesting place with lots of space for kids”
Review of Pickering Castle

Pickering Castle
Ranked #5 of 22 things to do in Pickering
Attraction details
Reviewed January 7, 2013

The Castle is a great spot to visit in Pickering, with lots of space and interesting bits for small children to run about and hide in, and great views from the top of the motte. Its only a shame it isn't open more often.

What a shame! My wife and I, like several others when we arrived, found the entrance fee far too high, so I guess that English Heritage lose a lot of custom (and therefore revenue) this way. What a shame, the site itself is imposing and the castle - from the outside! - is very impressive! One very good point - it's easy (and free!) to park in the road leading to the castle, and this itself is only a short walk from the lovely town.

On a car trip round this area we took a visit. Not a lot to see but still quite interesting. The grounds are well kept and it's quite sheltered in places.

liked that you were able to explore most parts of the castle and grounds
good visitor information
fantastic to visit, it really makes you appreciate the depth of ability needed to build such an impressive structure-history made real..much better than reading from a book!
no cafe when we visited but plenty in Pickering which is within walking distance-car parking available

We only saw the outside as it had closed on the 30th Sept. What a stupid way to run a tourist attraction. Lots of people there who expected it to be open expecially as it was a brilliant day.
