  • An enjoyable and very interesting visit,good audio guide with all the rlevent information as you walk around the site and along the walls.  more »
  • This is a very history and ancient castle that still has all of its walls intact around it, so much so that you can even walk around the whole castle. There is a great but dried up moat around it. It ...  more »

  • Nice castle to visit specially for children as there is a massive slide there. Not so much to do for adults. But has some great views on top of the wall. All in all nice place to visit for a day trip
  • Beautiful castle, we really enjoyed the walk along the top of the castle, great views from up there and children found being up that high very cool. We loved the time tunnel, so cool we spent lots of our time climbing the steps and sliding down, lots of squeals of excitement when the slide takes you round the corners brilliant slide. Great coffee from the cafe and a great view whilst we sat to enjoy our lunch. Don't know what it is about Framlingham Castle but it has a really beautiful atmosphere. We finished our day off nicely taking part in the knights and Princess' activities where we found the men in period costume hilarious. Would have liked to visit the Castle Inn just outside the castle walls where you can get some good views of the castle whilst enjoying some fresh Cromer crab but we ran out of time. Beautiful place we will definitely be returning.
  • I visited in the evening (after closing hours) and it was nice and peaceful. There were a few couples and dog walkers about but it was quiet. There is an information board in the grounds which was very interesting to read. You can walk right around the outside of the castle even when the castle itself is closed. There is a small pay and display car park near the entrance as well which was empty when we visited but I guess might fill up during the day. It would be nice if there were more information boards in the grounds though but it was a lovely place to go for an evening walk.
  • Good visit for those interested in history - Tudors & Howard family. Shop & cafe with good facilities. Need a good head for heights to walk round battlements. Slide down for a quick exit!
  • Great place to visit with a family. Good value for money. The free head phones are great because they have two modes; normal mode and 'horrible history' mode. Great coffee shop too.
