  • Come and explore this Norman castle and surrounding grounds. The principal rooms are still in pretty good condition and you can climb to the top to get a great view of the countryside. No cafe but you...  more »

  • I loved going around this castle, it is managed by English Heritage who do a great job looking after this beautiful site which was visited twice by the Black Prince. Built circa the 13th century it is one of 4 chief Norman castles around Cornwall, it has some beautiful views from the battlements and well worth a visit. Current prices for 2017 are Adults £4.30 and Children 5-15 £2.60.
  • What a hidden surprise this was - we made the 30+ minute walk from the NT property boundary at Lanhydrock. Thorough documentation of the ruin and great views from the ramparts. A friendly welcome at the ticket office by the entrance and any n excellent locally made ice cream on the way out.
  • Beautiful place and remarkably well preserved. Reasonable entrance fee and very well maintained grounds. Incredible views from the battlements and the walk around the moat. A small gift shop makes it a change from the overpriced, crammed gift shops at a lot of attractions.
  • You have to love ruin you can get to the top of! English Heritage staff particularly cheery on the day we visited. Nice little shop, toilets, tea and coffee facilities also.
  • Really interesting English Heritage site, nice to walk around and see a great piece of local history. The staff there are great too, really knowledgeable and helpful, covering the membership and local knowledge off in depth.
