    Brougham Castle is a great ruin! Although the grand chambers are no more, the descriptions on the site give a good impression of the castle, its workings and fortifications. It takes an hour or so to ...  more »

  • A beautiful castle with informative boards posted around the site. Great walk up to the top of the tower. Fantastic location by the river (although you can't walk down to it because it's on private land) and with a view that stretches on for miles. Possibly the best castle/English Heritage site I've been to in the past few years. Not too crowded. Amazing.
  • Very interesting place and the climb to the top of the castle gives great views if you are OK with heights. Parking is quite limited but even at Easter it's not really busy so no problem. Worth getting the guide book to understand the changes over the years.
  • Very informative assistant in the shop entrance. Shame the land down to the river is private owned so no access.
  • Friendly staff. Great views. We spent just over an hour there
  • Historic monument that you can actually climb on!! Great place to picnic. Great views.
