  • Dont get me wrong, this is a tiny castle and will take you all of 5 minutes to walk round but it's free and the children love visiting. 
  • Good historical information, but mostly in ruins. A small quiet park with the castle with informative planks. It can be a nice place to walk through but should not be the center of your visit 
  • Was interesting but not much to it. Only took about 10 minutes to go through. I would skip it unless you have nothing else to do.

  • Great ruins to visit, good idea to walk via the wall from city center, approx 10 ish minutes. Then walk back via back streets. Free to visit.
  • 4 walls, and one staircase. Not much else to this castle, but the price is right (free). A good place to keep going kids busy for 30 minutes on the edge of Canterbury city.
  • Nearly ruined, yet you will get a gimps of history here ,you should not miss this one if you visit the place.
  • Quiet space on occasion you can go up on top of the Castle and look upon the city of Canterbury. Despite the castles battered appearance it has never featured any battles nor has it been laid siege. The small grass area surrounding the park is frequented by local people and on a bright summers day could be ideal for a picnic!
  • Small and interesting Norman Castle c11 century which has 4 walls still standing. You can enter into the castle and there is no admission charge.
