The ruins of this castle are quite impressive and the grounds are a public park but as the castle is situated on top of a high cliff and the stunning and dramatic view of the River Nidd and the viaduct crossing it is breathtaking.

Lovely ruins in well kept grounds. The view down to the river and bridge is breathtaking. Plenty of benches to sit and enjoy the view.

Calling the place a Castle is a bit misleading in my opinion, as new visitors might expect much more. Should the place been considered a public park it would have definitely got a higher stars from me as the views from the place is amazing specially the bridge across the river.

The castle ruins were good to see and get the imagination going as to the site in its former glory. The views from up by the castle also make it totally worthwhile for a visit.
