  • Nice views from the top but beware when windy as it's fairly open up there! Very helpful and friendly staff member who we then bumped into at Richmond Castle. Can spend a good hour in there but go whe...  more »
  • Stopped to have a look around, cost around £5-6 each to get in. Could do with a few more information panels as many of the sections have no information with them. Nice to see a castle ruins with some ...  more »
  • Initially closed when we arrived we went in and had a wander around but I'll be honest the site could really have done with more signage explaining what was what. A great structure but not one of EH's...  more »

  • A great little town with a beautiful view of the surrounding beauty. The castle has plenty of space to run around and climb (just a little) for families. Nice little gift shop with super friendly staff. Give yourself about two hours for a complete tour. Enjoy the views from the top of the keep.
  • We had a great time at the castle, the young man working there was very knowledgeable & we enjoyed talking to him. Looking round the castle was a lovely experience & being able to go up to the top was wonderful, the views are beautiful, little wonder Richard 3rd loved it there. We will definatly be going back, it's well worth it.
  • We first visited this ruin in 2014. It was a couple of hours and £5 each well spent. You can climb to the higher parts and get great views of Middleham and the moors. The Castle itself is very interesting - if a little spooky - at times. Worth a visit if you are in the area.
  • If you are a Hertigage member then this is well worth a stop. A ruined castle with lots of information about Richard III and his impact on the area. You can climb up to the top of the ruins which gives nice views over the town. We spent about an hour here with the kids and that was enough to see it all.
  • Lovely big open castle with good ruins. Can be a little bit confusing to try and follow the guides and not much information offered on site. Staff on site not able to answer many questions. Good if you just enjoy looking around, not so good if you like a lot of information about different aspects and working functions of the once standing beautiful castle.
