  • Really disappointing. Many of the information boards were illegible due to age and vandalism. The advertised picnic area (right by the entrance) has no bins, consequently visitors had hidden rubbish away around the ruins. Only saving grace is that dogs are allowed on site.
  • We saw a lot castles the last days but wardour is truly outstanding. Perfect place for a family picnic.
  • Really nice gaff. Well worth a visit. Especially if your into robin hood.
  • A nice day out with plenty of freedom to stroll and picnic. A fiver each to get in. One word of warning tho.... parking is bad, had to get 4 willing volunteers to push the lovebus out of the soft grass. Only about a dozen or so hard car spaces.
  • Just my favourite place in the world. A summer's day spent here picnicing with the family is a summer's day well spent.
