Called in on this attraction as it is part of English Heritage, it is a small castle ruin but worth a visit if you are in the area. There is a great view from the top of one of the towers.

Nice grounds. Very interesting old ruins with great story. Nice grounds and good views. English Heritage is doing a great job here. Limited parking, however, down dead end road near office.

Smashing English Heritage run castle, originally built in the 13th century but restored in the 17th Century. Extremely interesting ruins and you can walk right up to the battlements for some great views of the area. Love castles, certainly loved this one.

Just a couple of minutes off the A66, about 30 minutes by car from Keswick, Brougham castle sits next to the River Eamont, and is easy to drop into if you happen to be passing by. The river apparently once formed the border between England...More
