  • Great place to visit! Took a 6 year old, a 13 year old and 2 17 year olds and we all enjoyed it. Entry is free for children up to 18 which is unusual these days. 😁 Lovely views from the top and an interesting museum crammed full of local history. Cafe is nice too, cakes are huge! 😁🍰 Well worth a visit and the town is nice to wander around after too.
  • I took my children and had a fantastic day there. We went around the museum and they took turns to dress up and learned so.muvh about the area, castle and the local wildlife. Highly recommended with the addition of a lovely cafe, art centre and extensive gardens. Brilliant.
  • Great fun learning about multiple things such as how Pendle Hill was formed. Plenty of interactive things for young ones to do too who go free too.
  • 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.
  • Inexpensive and free for kids up to 18. Informative museum. Keep is small, but the views from the walkway are superb.
