  • 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 »

  • From a distance it looks like a standard old castle ruin. But once in it, it's impressive. Very impressive. Covers a lot of area, has a lot of structure and has a lot to say for itself. Probably not as impressive mid winter, but a good day out till then. Oh, and dog friendly.
  • 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.
  • The history is incredible. Lovely, great to wonder around. You can walk up a couple of the old towers. Small fee to get in.
  • Lovely castle with great surroundings. The kids enjoyed being at the very top of the castle.
  • 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.
