Brough Castle Reviews
I am a big fan of ruined castles, and Brough Castle is a pretty impressive one. It is very accessible, just off the A685, but feels pleasingly rural being on the edge of the village. There is free par... more »
Lovely location and great to look round the old ruins if you like this type of thing. Lovely views from the site although windy even on a summers day. more »
If you like castle then don't miss this one. Easy found, well sign posted. Good parking, tarred path, good display boards and you can go in and wonder about. Really good & if you've a good imagination... more »
Been a few years since my last visit , but I'm going to assume that the place has not been renovated and it's still ruins. One of my favourite free EH ruins (so membership is not required ... although I do recommend it) , interesting structure and great views , local farm does a visitors shop just by the entrance with some great Ice-creams ... peace and quiet away from the crowds (well there are a few sheep to keep you company)
Was there on a late Sunday afternoon so didn't get a chance to visit the shop, but could still walk around the ruins. Beautiful place with fantastic views
Historic and the kids love it. The ice cream parlour next to it sells the best ice cream ever
visited on a dark, wet and windy December afternoon . The site is well chosen, elevated and with commanding views of the Eden and Stainmore Pass. There are large sections standing with good informative signs that show how it once probably looked. One can still see the earthworks that define the old Roman fort it was built on. Fantastic that it is free although perhaps English Heritage could consider a donations box on the site. I spent an hour there and even walked around the castle in the old moat which is still after all this time very wet ..A really interesting and worthwhile hour spent here. Rounded off with excellent fish and chips in Kirkby Stephen on the way home....
Nice place for exploring and the ice cream parlour is good! It's also free!!!
