Took the children along for St George's day, there was plenty of stuff going on in a very friendly, relaxed atmosphere. We all enjoyed exploring the castle grounds and the young ones really enjoyed the small games and St George slaying the dragon!!

A very interesting site with a variety of buildings and amazing views. There's littl;e left of the interior of most buildings however the small castle still has its panelling. The absence of artefacts does not detract from the pleasure of enjoying the architecture and history...More

Bolsover Castle is mostly a ruin apart from the little castle which has been preserved and is more like a manor house than a castle, it is undergoing some restoration by English Heritage and some of the rooms are very bare. The ruined parts are...More
