  • Great to be able to chamber around the site with my trusty hound. Climbed right to the top and walked back round the ditch. The information boards were good too - really helped get a sense of how it used to be.
  • Very Interesting and very informative with boards around the ruins explaining what part of the castle it was. Young children would enjoy playing at being knights in shining armour. While older members took in the history. Plenty of places to take picnics also.
  • It's free entry...Easy to find as long as your using Google maps/Sat Nav. Castle Acre is a hidden Gemstone, lovely place to go with the kids...
  • Just drove by it, and it was head turning. Small but attractive.
  • Beatiful place. For my child Place to run.
