  • 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.
