    A beautiful place to visit on a warm sunny day, which we were lucky enough to have. Some really beautiful view looking over into the town. It's an English heritage place. The lady in the shop was very...  more »

  • A pleasant castle to visit. There are extensive remaining ruins with information boards throughout the grounds. The castle is quite beautiful and commands good views over Barnard and the Tees. Very little hands on experience as with some other heritage sites - could do with some investment.
  • Great fun for the kids. Plenty of space to run about in between playing at storming the castle. Only one toilet on site, so be prepared to queue.
  • Nicely sized for a sunny afternoon with a picnic with the kids. Some good fun exploring the ruins and climbing to the top.
  • Large site with plenty to see , great views out over the town .... Site does not have a cafe or on site parking .... great for the young ones to play around in
  • I live near and I would love to keep this to myself but it must be shared.
