  • Walk around the outside and read about the history, then venture inside. You can walk up a flight to the first floor. Short visit to imagine how it would have looked when William had it built after th...  read more »
  • Impressive ruined facade, but not much left to see. A minor diversion when passing by, but not much to hold the interest 
  • This is an extremely old castle and one marvels at the capabilities of men without our modern tools. 
  • 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.
  • Nothing fancy here. The castle is more like a "a bunch of stones that were a castle a lot of years ago". It's free to visit, actually the visit is a quick 3 minutes visit where you can see the 4 walls of the castle from outside and inside, because that's all it has.
  • It's free to get into, but there isn't a huge amount to see or do (just a couple of interpretation boards). The pictures show you everything, and there aren't really any good views from the castle - just a couple of staircases, but they look inside the castle. While we were there, there was a strong smell of urine against the walls, and it seemed to be the gathering place for daytime drinkers, so not the most pleasant of picnic spots either!
  • Crumbling ruin of a Norman Castle c11 century. Not much to it apart from a spiral staircase and a well
