    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 »

  • For me is kinda magical place.. Love the view from there into town.. Love the place
  • Not bad castle, smaller than I was expecting. Stunning view from the top
  • Sitting grandly at the top of a hill, Launceston Castle has fabulous views in all directions. The information boards are informative and interesting.
  • Nice open area in the Bailey to sit, run or picnic, and access to the Motte
  • Beautiful view from the castle ground, nice park to enjoy yourself in
