  • It took just over an hour with the audio guide but worth the time , learnt loads and the lady from English Heritage was great  more »
  • It is very interesting to visit, but once one is inside the tour is also over. There is not so much to see. All beautifully prepared, just unfortunately not very much, as one might expect. The price of admission is therefore too high despite audio guide in many different languages.

  • We were disappointed to find the castle closed but we were able to park our motor home there and enjoy a walk around the perimeter in the blustery sunshine  more »

  • Beautiful castle and grounds. Doesn't need to be open to visit, can still walk around the outside and enjoy it. Would be lovely place for a picnic in good weather. Not busy at all in the off season. Car park right in front, another nearby in the city center.
  • Orford itself is such a gorgeous 'chocolate box' picturesque place to visit and if you have the time. viewing the castle with accompanied audio commentary will really help to bring the history to life.
  • Great and unexpected experience! Nice preserved castle with an audio guide wich makes you feel that you are living in that period. Very warm welcome at the reception. Parking being reimbursed. Nice walk in the village to the river. And on the way to Ipswich must stop to the High House Apple Farm☺
  • Great English heritage property. Not much parking but enough. Small gift shop. Most of the castle is open to explore, right up top the roof. There are some interesting displays to read as well. You are a short walk from the quay and the town centre. Makes for a lovely day out. We will be returning.
  • Fantastic ancient castle. Wonderful to walk in a British castle that is not a pile of rubble
