This is a nice castle with some interesting history. Mostly ruins, but the provided audio guide and the signage throughout brought the castle to life. Our boys enjoyed it as much as we did. What really sets Goodrich apart though is their staff. From the moment we arrived until leaving everyone we encountered was warm and friendly. We had tea... More

We visited as a family with young children and it was great. Easy access for the buggy's, and the five year old was easily able to navigate all the stairs etc. Beautifully preserved and a good size for the children not to get bored!

Lovely find. Well worth a visit, especially with kids even at English Heritage's rates! Please just watch the slippy steps.

Compared to other castles I have visited this is poor value for money. All done in half an hour. I would be willing to pay £2.50 max. Also there is no need to revisit.

Although the castle is pretty big, it remains hidden until you've walked a little way from the car park. As you get closer, it looms out of the ground before you and is pretty impressive. A great place to explore and your climb up the tower, via a dark, spiral staircase, is rewarded by the spectacular views you get of... More

After a small walk up to the castle you are taken away by the scale of the castle!!! It was a great to wander round even the rainy day didn't take away from atmosphere of the castle, can't wait to come in the spring!
