    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 »

    We are far from being locals and live in an area where castles are plentiful but this is one of our favourite destinations and has been for more years than we like to admit! The history of the castle ...  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 »

  • 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.
