Impressive ruins with good information boards and hand sets if wanted. Shop is a cut above the normal and the cafe spotless. Pleasant place to eat in nice surroundings. Not really suitable for wheelchairs though by asking a car can be taken close so disabled...More

Always amusing to read the reviews on TA, especially the negative ones. The two big criticisms seem to be cost (why isn't our history free to the great British taxpayer? - type comments) and there not being enough to do. So to the first point,...More

Spent the morning here with family. Reasonable priced, but with English Heritage membership it is free. A nice walk up to the castle, which is well preserved and has plenty of information boards. Lovely views from the top of the keep of the River Wye...More

As English Heritage members admission was free although parking was £1 all day which is a bargain compared to some places. Castle itself is about half a mile walk from ticket entrance but it gives you the feeling of what happened in the olden day’s....More

You have to pay £1 at a machine to park all day in the car park. It then costs £8 to get in. You are pressured into buying, the English Heritage membership, guide book or the Audio Tour which we did manage to avoid paying...More

Goodrich Castle is well worth a visit, but you do need to be mobile, good restaurant, facilities and shop, so if you are up this way come and see it.

Interesting ruin surrounded by a beautiful rural setting. The audio tour is very good with extra background information about the castle 's former inhabitants. The primary school pupils who were there when we visited were entranced so it clearly has something for all ages.

Our first visit to Goodrich Castle was ruined by torrential rain, and whilst we could admire the castle it was impossible to take a tour. Our second visit did not disappoint us. It was a beautiful summers day which more than made up for our...More
