Pleasant little green space with Norman ruins, across the road from the train station. Good for a little 15 minute walk round or family picnic. No amenities such as cafe, shop or toilets though.
Great morning adventure. There could be a little more information around, but of what there is is engaging and informative. Good on a sunny day with a picnic.
Surprised by this place, sure it's a ruined castle but the minimal information provided helps give you an understanding of its purpose and design, plus the view on the top of the hill is awesome.
Amazing to see how local history affects the wider situation. Never thought the castle would be this interesting, but it was!
Apart from the obvious historical aspects, this is a lovely place for a picnic and maybe a bit of train spotting too. The main line between Euston and Scotland runs close by. The castle itself is a ruin, with only the unclad flintstone walls remaining to give an impression of its former glory. That said, the earthworks, moat and motte are still as they were. The view from the top of the motte is well worth the climb up the 62 steps, and you can imagine how impressive and impregnable the bailey would have been. The grounds are flat and accessible, though the ground is either gravel over mud or grass, so soft in wet weather. The only drawback is the lack of available parking nearby. Berkhampstead station is only 100m level walk away if you prefer public transport though.
