  • It is what it is. Doesn't look a lot, but an incredibly important site nonetheless. I went on a wet day, I guess on a dry day you could explore the exterior a lot more. Take a picnic though.
  • Disappointing, I expected more, luckily we didn't have to pay to get in but if i had It would not have been value for money, whilst the castle is a good example of its type and the view is lovely, it's certainly not worth the entrance fee
  • A must visit if you go to Totnes, delightful staff and very helpful. Great views.
  • Good enjoyable few hours wondering around totnes and castle will defo go back
