As others have said, the views from here are outstanding and the walk down to the river is lovely. Not much castle left but all quite pleasant set amongst attractive gardens. did not experience any problems with dog mess

Very pleasant grounds rising up above the River Nidd towards Knaresborough town centre. Plenty of walks and views. Boating on the river. The Castle looks worth an internal visit but it was just closing when I arrived! Grounds are free but charge for Castle itself I think.

beautiful views across the river especially in the evening, not a lot left of the castle but definitely worth a look if you are in the area. the walk by the river is always a pleasure especially on a nice day.
