Kirby Muxloe Castle Reviews
The hotel is lovely, the rooms are spacious and quirky. The room was warm, the en-suite was gorgeous and the staff helpful and friendly. The trouble began when we decided to eat in the restaurant. I c... more »

I used to play there as a child in the 1970's. I think it was 2p to go in. One of us would distract the old man in his little shed at the end of the drawbridge while the others sneaked past. He MUST have known what was going on when there was suddenly a dozen kids running around with invisible machine guns. Go see it if you are in the area. English Heritage own it now so you don't stand much chance of sneaking in.
Lovely place to visit if the weather is nice and to take a picnic. Not many benches so take a blanket lol. Clean and tidy place and well maintained. The shop could do with improving though.
Lovely ruins and staff are nice and helpful. It's small but you can walk round the moat which is beautiful. You can climb a little inside the two main bits standing. Carpark is very small and there's no toilets as the portaloo was thrown into the moat and is now out of use. Nearest is the hotel around the corner on the main road.
These are the remains of a water castle. There isn't much that remains of the buildings, but there is a big bridge over the moat and one can climb up some stairs inside. Good for a walk around the outside and sitting around on the grass on a sunny day.
Definitely worth a visit. Even if the castle is officially closed you can still walk around it and get some lovely views
