Great views from the castle gardens. Ravens there too on a regular basis. The castle was closed today Saturday 22 Sept 2018, not sure why but lost loads of custom. Very busy in this area a with tourists that had specifically come to see the castle. Great views of the river and plenty of seating and gardens.

There’s not a lot left of the castle but it’s a peaceful space with great views across to the viaduct and the river.

We had attended a family wedding in nearby Harrogate and had a few hours to kill before our flight home. I had Googled places in the area and Knaresborough looked interesting, particularly the amazing view of the river and viaduct from the castle grounds. Being into photography I wanted to capture the iconic view for myself !
The ruins of the castle and the park were also interesting, especially the 'tame' ravens sitting on the back of one of the park benches!
The town was pretty and quaint and we found a nice cafe for some lunch before heading off to the airport.
All in all, a pleasant couple of hours spent here.

Although the castle is small and mostly in ruin, it’s really interesting to see the interior and learn the history of the site. The castle grounds are free to walk around and are a lovely spot to sit down and relax. Your cheap(!) ticket includes access to the museum across the bowls green, which is also fascinating to have a look around. It’s a lovely place to visit. There was even ravens in the grounds which you can hold if you want to! A really great day out.
