  • Been coming to Guildford many years and decided to walk down one of the little alleyways and stumbled across the castle ruins and grounds. Can't believe it's one block from the main shopping street and so peaceful. Worth a visit if only for the views of surrounding area. Very well kept grounds and the flower borders a riot of spring colour
  • Really beautiful and peaceful grounds, great for anyone that wants a quiet place for a picnic or read a book etc. The castle itself is mainly just the old keep, rather small but well worth the token admission price to go up the tower.
  • I have a long walk around. Found Alice, piercering through the mirror. Went into this castle. Nice nature and park!!
  • One of my favourite places to have a nice chilled out afternoon wandering around the castle grounds
  • The grounds surrounding the castle was kept very tidy. Lots of benches available for sitting and eating your packed lunches on. Dependent on the time of year you visit, the fully bloomed flowers were absolutely stunning! Must visit during that time! There is a small fee to go up to the very top of the castle.
