  • This is a relatively well preserved castle ruins. Work has been done to get up the keep and also make some of it accessible. This place is tied in with the history of Richard III and is the second cas...  more »

  • Not a lot to see as quite ruinous but if you are a fan of the late King then this is a must. The village is very quaint but you have to find parking where you can, as there is none at the castle (as i...  more »

  • Where Richard III spent his childhood. Very knocked about but still impressive. There are steps up one if the corner towers which give a good view over about 1/2 way around the surrounding countryside. There are useful displays around the castle giving artists' impressions of how it could have looked when in use. There is also a small display in the cabin just in side the castle entrance which tells the background and history of the castle.
  • Lovely place and lovely lady at reception. Nice place to walk with the dog. Great views if you can make it to the top of the tower.
  • Absolutely stunning. Exactly what you think when someone says 'castle'. Big, square, stone, impregnable beast. I only wish there were more information boards spread throughout so I could fall even more in love with it.
  • 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.
  • Absolutely loved looking round the castle. Fascinating history. Recommend the guidebook. Lovely member of staff who told us all about the place.
