  • A local and dominating landmark that I grew up with. Still go back to this folly that can be seen from miles away and provides a fascinating view of West Yorkshire. Whilst here, I don't think of all the other towns & cities I have been to but cherish the childhood memories and remaining family links to Castle Hill.
  • Stunning views! You can see for miles all around on a clear day. Slightly disappointed we couldn't get a view from the top of the tower, but the view from the bottom was so Beautiful, we didn't mind so much
  • The view from here is great especially if you go when the tower is open and you climb to the top. It is the site of an Iron age fort with evidence of medieval settlements too. There are history boards around the site to explain. It can be very windy up there if there is and breeze at all in the valleys.
  • Our nostalgic visit to Castle Hill to see Victoria Tower and the stunning views was incredible, the bonus today included the sun and lovely blue sky. The downside for this unique and beautiful place was all the litter bins where full and over flowing. The public had obviously tried their best to place litter in the receptacles provided, however if the council do not empty them, the litter then is blown around this iconic place, making it unkempt /untidy ,which takes away the beauty of the entire experience of visiting this historic site.
  • Great views and easy parking Would be nice for picnics. Down side of it is its a shame people don't put their litter in the bins provided or take it home including dog feces laying about.
