  • We stayed right next to the castle was ok. Better castles if you need to travel any distance. But interesting and great views from the top. Long steep walk to get to castle.  more »
  • Either it was us or the signage isn't very clear to get to the castle. Think it might be better to park in one of the town car parks and walk  more »
  • Well worth a visit even if it's just for the views from top. Value for money is excellent and the cashier was very knowledgeable about the history of the castle and other similar castles in the area.  more »

  • I didn't expect this castle ruins to be so magnificent, but it actually is and you can also climb the tower in the middle. Which I did, and it provided for some amazing views. So definitely worth to make a short stop her, it's easy to get there anyway and you just park your car across the road at the carpark for £ 0,60 for one hour!
  • Great view and a intriguing little museum to go with. Helpful staff is certainly a benefit aswell always happy to answer questions :)
  • . Kids loved it. I managed the steps aged 78 with poor health and loved the view that super Lady in the Castle shop was such fun
  • My aunt had her wedding there it was such a fun experience for me to see
  • Lovely castle ruins, great place for kids in the summer and has fantastic views of Launceston from the top of the castle. Not much more to do here though once you've walked around the castle grounds.
