“Pleasant way to spend an hour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Castle ruins are very large but not enough info is given unless you buy the book. Not suitable for those with mobility problems either.

“High above Pickering”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

Following the signs from the Ropery through the busy shopping street and up above Pickering you will find Pickering Castle. Very friendly greeting from the member of staff. Lots of open space for the children to play knights and explore. The views were restricted as the surrounding trees are in full leaf. There is a walk around the outside of the castle which is not suitable for some due to the terrain and gradients.

Good views on a clear day from the central bailey (mound) looking over Pickering itself and the Yorkshire Wolds.

“Bit disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Beautiful place but poor signposting meant we drove past it and needed directions. Once there it was very difficult to park. Room for 5 cars maximum. Displays were good.
