Visited with my children to see a real example of a Motte and Bailey Castle. The sign is quite small, so nearly drove past! The car parking is limited. The visitor centre is only open at the weekend 11 am until 4 pm from November...More

First things first, there isn't much left of the castle to look at really. If you are in the area I think it's still worth visiting, because it's free admission and the walk uphill is somewhat nice. You can walk around and have a picnic,...More

The Castle itself is in Ruins but it's a very nice place to go for a walk on a nice day. There's a little museum and the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable.

The castle has great views over Staffordshire. The ancient herb gardens are interesting and if there is an event on it is worth a visit. If not you can go into Stafford to see the ancient house and shops to make up a day out.

Was a beautiful day. Took my girlfriend for a walk around the castle as we are both into history, love reading the information boards about the castle. Helps you understand the place and the history of it all a bit more. Haven't been inside yet...More

Had a bit of time on our hands following a poor driving experience nearby, and before we could check into our hotel, saw the signs and dropped by. Pleasantly surprised to find no charge either for the car park or for admission to the site....More
