  • Really nice historic castle/ruin, great views of ashby, lots of historic importance... minimal parking and access via a lane shared with local tenis club (members of which dont seem to know how to drive/park) though so be warned.
  • Intresting to go around, but alot of it is locked behind gates and the history boards could be more detailed i feel.
  • Quite interesting, though in my view a bit expensive if you're not an English Heritage member. The free audio guide is quite entertaining if overly long and not exactly historically accurate (ignore the scurrilous stuff about Richard III!). You need strong legs if you're going to go up the tower and the steps are very narrow.
  • I have so many fond memories of the place from childhood. Recently went back and it's still a brilliant castle. English Heritage haven't completely ruined it..
  • Back to history, nice visit of an English historic place.
