  • Great local attraction. Having lived locally all our lives we had never visited but found the pleasant staff and free audio guide very informative. A little overpriced as with all English heritage sites, but worth it to maintain this gem of local history.

  • Something draws me back to Orford and the castle every year. The castle and village itself have lots of character and charm the pubs always give you a warm welcome. A definite place to visit.
  • Great place to fly a kite. Beautiful old castle with some good local trails to follow.
