Even though I have visited the Castle last year, still I remember it's interior and the view from the top platform. It is worth paying the admission price and going inside. You will be delighted, and so will be your children.
Very informative, a bit if a trek to the castle but well worth the effort, plenty of seats on the way up, on reaching the castle the views over Castleton and the surrounding area are stunning.
This place closes far too early, they were not going to let us in even though we were there before last admissions! Then we saw the prices, I was so disappointed. I love history and the fact that we were unable to see it was upsetting. Normally I would never have any issues with the price but after the way... 更多
Ok so first thing you need to know is that the climb to the castle is very steep. Next thing you need to know is that the ruins are not very large. Also to make the most of them get a guide book. Though there are signs there's no audio guide here you are going to have to do the... 更多
Thank the lord there are so many benches on the way up the hill to the castle. Would not have attempted the climb had I realised as im a lazy b##ger but once I committed and with my husband shouting rude remarks behind me I got to the top. Only to find even more stairs on offer, which I declined.... 更多
The walk up the hill to the castle is a serious workout for calves and thighs, but the view from the top is more than worth it. Amazing scenery right across the dale and down to Castleton below. The castle is a ruin, of course, but it's well looked after by English Heritage and you can venture into the keep,... 更多
Very steep walk to the top but the great views make up for it with steep gorges on two sides. Interesting history. Staff were friendly and welcoming.
I visited here because I am a member of English Heritage. It is a steep climb up to the castle. There is only one remaining building which you can go inside. The views are amazing. It was windy and raining when I went - I would probably have spent longer there on a sunnier day.
This is a short but steep walk up to the castle. Great views over Castleton. Would suggest a guide be around to explain more rather than just the signs.
As with most English Heritage sites it could be said that Peverill Castle is merely a pile of stones. That said, it's location is quite spectacular. Entry to the property is via a small visitors centre/gift shop. Wheelchair access is available to the first floor (toilets and outside seating area) however that's it. The climb to the castle is via... 更多
Ok how to sum up the trip up the very step hill in the freezing cold up more steep steps to the top of a old pile of rubble. Now I like my history but to be honest it's not worth paying for - it's rubbish. You don't even get a drink at the top of the hill!
Spent an afternoon at Peveril Castle during a long weekend in the Peak District. Being an English heritage site, it's a fiver to get in to a ruin, which seems wrong as a member of the National trust where you get (in my opinion) better value for money. That said, we had a good time there, in a place with... 更多
To the people who gave this site a bad review, may I just say the following? Yes, it's a steep climb to the castle - it's a castle, which, predominantly, most castles ARE on high points! Yes, it's a ruin for the most part - think about it...it is around one thousand years old - what, pray, are buildings like... 更多
Of course the castle is on a big hill .. it's a castle! But being English Heritage members is a blessing as we actually went to this castle twice last week!! It's got some wonderful history and the view up here is worth it. You'll notice a walk behind the castle - we did this also & it's extremely brilliant... 更多
We drove all the way to this castle only to be met with a hike up the hill to get to the castle. We are members of English heritage but it wasn't clearly explained in the guide that it is up hill.Very dissapointed that this venue isn't clearly explained.The parking is in the main town if you can get a... 更多
