Bolton Castle, Leyburn

Categories: Castles, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
3.8/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
Surviving since the 14th century, Bolton Castle exists after withstanding attacks during the English Civil War. Enjoy a walk in the meticulously maintained herb garden and vineyard, or get lost in the hedge-maze. Learn about the importance of falcons by taking a tour with the expert falconer. Due to its popularity, book the "Hawk Walk" in advance. Make sure you bring your camera when you climb to the top of the castle. The stairs are steep, so take extra care with kids and the elderly. When you need a rest, visit the tearoom for a selection of food and drink. Use our Leyburn trip itinerary planner to arrange your visit to Bolton Castle and other attractions in Leyburn.
