The castle is a ruin - you can see the remains of walls and the keep, with informative signage throughout. This is a great little piece... More

Stunning views and location make this well worth the climb. Good history lesson for the kids courtesy of English Heritage info boards which are very accessible. I think two years ago you were allowed inside the keep but no longer. Really interesting hour spent here.

There is a charge to walk up to the castle! I didn't necessarily want to see the castle or go inside, but the hill itself has been closed off - you have to pay. I don't think this is in the spirit of the Peak District national park. There should be a charge for the castle but not the walk... More

I visited here with my partner on a cold sunday afternoon in january. it is basically a ruin, but nice to see if you are interested in history. The way up to the castle is up quite a steep hillside and there is no handrail for most of the climb. I am 54 and my partner is 61, so we... More

Had such a fantastic time here! Make sure you have your walking legs on as the walk up to the castle can hurt if you are not much of a walker!! :) Well worth it though once you get to the top. Amazing views and plenty of history to read about. Not forgetting the local cat which sat with us... More

It is quite a steep climb up the hillside to Peveril Castle from Castleton village, and there isn't much left except for a tower to walk up. The castle is only open at weekends in Winter but in any case the view from the hilltop alone is splendid.

Not even a C of a castle. Waste of money as they charge you £10 to go up the hill ! Although hill top is scenic and I like walking.

This is the second visit to the Castle, there are seats on every corner of the walk up for a reason, dont do the walk after a pub lunch...... It is a steep walk up but the views are great and worth the walk. This is a EH site and we are members so could be costly but free to... More

A fantastic view - well worth the steep climb up. Our 7 year old loved it. It is a ruin but you can climb into the tower up a staircase.
