This is an English heritage site, so make use if your a member. Great for exploring, kids loved Climbing the rocks on a small beach there and all the books and crannies. Loads of steps..beware, but so worth it.

Fabulous place to visit! Amazing views, and a feat of engineering by medieval people to have built this castle in the sky!

A place of myth and legend! It’s a long walk from the village down to the seafront and another long walk up to the castle. Then you have to walk down again and then back up to the village. We had a great time but...More

Castle was closed to build the new bridge. We were really disappointed as were unaware of the closure. The walk down is lovely (Not so much back up, hills are steep). The views around the castle and coastal walk are breath taking and well worth...More
