  • Very accessible and lovely ruined castle visit, the kids love it. Currently an ice cream parlour at the entrance so good for an ice cream or a hot drink while visiting!!  more »
  • This site is free to visit, it's just of the main road.. it's a surprisingly big site considering it's free! I would recommend visiting early so it's quiet and you can appreciate the site  more »
  • It's well worth a visit to this free site for the views and as you can see in the picture the curiously laid back sheep. There's a cafe next door with kids play area outside.  more »

  • Interesting ruins. Nice picnic area. Fine tea rooms & ice cream parlour.
  • We went to Brough Castle and were not expecting to find such a lovely castle and brilliant facilities provided by the farm. Whilst the castle is a ruin I was surprised by the size and sections had been restored which was enough to visualise how it had been in its day helped by some informative plaques placed around the castle. My husband and I, my teenage nieces and 2 year old daughter all spent an enjoyable hour roaming around the castle and enjoying the views. The farm situated next to the castle has a lovely playground with slides, a wooden castle, swings and a little play house full of toy kitchen items. The new lambs provided great entertainment and the two adorable farm dogs brought along a football and invited us to a game! There were also some toys and ride alongs for toddlers. A lovely afternoon was finished off perfectly by a visit to the ice parlour where we enjoyed delicious ice creams and refreshments and met the lovely owner who was very friendly. The cafe was also very child friendly with a well equipped changing table, potty and toilet insert. There were also some farm related gifts for sale. The cows were lined up in the shed and bid us farewell with a few moos much to the delight of my daughter. I can thoroughly recommend this place for an afternoon of family entertain which doesn't cost the earth- entry in to the castle was free and we just spent £13 on drinks and ice creams for five of us. We will certainly be going back to this charming and lovely tourist destination full of simple pleasures and will be recommending it to all of our friends.
  • Well, I know that it´s free but it´s like people don´t bother for it. You can see people climbing the wall, nobody it´s controlling it. The castle is quite deteriorated and I don´t know how long it´s going to last with people´s behavior. I wouldn´t recommend travel to Brough just because of the castle.
  • Wonderful!
