  • Lovely staff very friendly I think when they have events on it will be better tiny carpark too and missing information on 1 of the places. Was nice too see good example of a castle and the staff was very knowable.
  • Nice little castle in pickering, not a whole lot of the castle remains but what is there is interesting enough, if you climb up the central mound the views all around are quite nice, can recommend a visit.
  • Very interesting historical castle with knowledgeable and helpful guides. Worth a visit, great for children.
  • It is open to the public and free to access if you are part of the English Heritage. Pickering Castle dates back from the 13th century and although it has a lot of history and was used by medieval kings and other important historic figures it is now a ruin with not much to see.
  • A lovely castle in Pickering, unfortunately due to the nature of the place there isn't much disabled access
