  • Interesting place for a visit, with tea rooms and a rare breeds centre as a bonus. Need more notices about not climbing the tower walls though, there was a lot of potential for nasty accidents with quite small children scrambling up.
  • Shite. Call that a castle? My special needs son builds more impressive structures out of lego! Wouldn't recommend.
  • Lovely. Nice ruins of Hadleigh castle. Lots of history. Beautiful views . There is free parking around which is not too far (10-15 min walk from the parking area to Castle ).
  • Great, unless you live near it and have to suffer it being a drunken hangout for kids at night.
  • Lovely to walk through the castle's ruins, then go to the cafe near by for tea and cake
