    Located at the top of Clitheroe, the Castle provides a very beautiful "Tower" (town).

  • A nice way of spending a few hours. Although the castle is a small ruin, there is a nice exhibition centre which is suitable for children. You can climb up and admire the tremendous views which I recommend. The exhibition is informative and is about the local area which is of course steeped in history. There is a nice cafe there as well as a gift shop. The staff were friendly and we all enjoyed our visit.
  • The Atrium is a great place to meet for coffee and a chat, staff are friendly. It has also hosted some of the Clitheroe Jazz Festival this weekend. It was a lovely setting.
  • Nicely put together displays covering the Clitheroe area from pre history to the present day. Plenty of stuff to interest children.
  • A fascinating museum with interesting displays. I loved the bits about geology with rock and fossil objects. Everything is well laid out and we spent a lot of time here. There are several benchmarks around the castle. The one at the entrance is 330.6 feet.
  • I absolutely love this place don't matter how many times I come with the kids we never get bord of it
