  • Visited the dungeons at Pontefract Castle when friends came over from America. We really enjoyed the tour, very informative! And our visitors...although nervous entering the hole in the ground enjoyed the experience too. I am so pleased that they can return home having seen a little English history other than London or York! Our dogs took the tour too! One was scared so I carried him, the other was fine and I can assure you there are no rats down there as she can smell a rat several miles off! :D
  • Sadly the castle is only small ruins but it's still lovely and the underground is open for tours. Nice events during the summer.
  • Went 30years ago before any work was done on it even though I only live 10 minutes away. So I've been down again new visitors centre due to open loads of work been done nice enjoyed it. Bank holiday monday loads going on
  • Been to many castle's but this one was disappointing. No parking facilities had to park in local supermarket.. not really a lot to do.
  • So much history to learn
