  • Very poor you cannot go inside the rooms. 15 mins is all you need for this visit. £7.00 each is an excessive price. No facilities other that a toilet. Of many sites we have visited this is without doubt the bottom of my list. Value for money really does not exist. Very disappointing.
  • My wife's Grandfather's Surname was Compton so naturally we had to visit this glorious midevil castle when visiting England. It is, even for those without any historic connection, this castle is a must see! BTW: Thunder is my 75lb, 29" tall at his front shoulders, AKC PureBred Black Standard Poodle Service Dog, bred and trained in the US by a group of special SD trainer of Service Dogs for Wounded Warriors funded by the US Dept. of Defense's Partner's Program. Please, find & support organization's that provide Service Dogs, without charging the recipients who are not able to afford the $35,000 to $60,000++ cost of breeding, raising & training Service Dogs. Thank you and enjoy your visit to Compton Castle!
  • Lovely Castle Set in a lovely quiet spot in a little village called compton. This is a very interesting place to have a wonder around for a few hours.
  • Very good
  • A nice little castle and garden, but nothing compared to the real castles in Scottland
