Enjoyable spot, and very impressive stone circle. Obviously well known - a lot of people there when we were. Good to find a free attraction without parking machines!

We took two young teenagers here...and they loved it! It's gorgeous in good weather and brooding when it's rainy. (Wear wellies!) It's a powerful place, if you believe that kind of thing, or just archeologically interesting if you don't.

Whilst the stones are not as large as Stonehenge the site is fully accessable and the very impressive, also the alignment for the solstace its spot on. Great site and a lot to see in the area around.

Standing at the circle you can see a full 360 degree view of the surrounding mountains- beautiful! Highly recommended!

Easy access to this ancient stone circle, in a beautiful setting surrounded by mountains. The sheep are an extra.

Fascinating stone circle older than Stonehenge surrounded by fells. Very close to the road so easy to access if you cant walk far. very close to Keswick but it feels miles and ages away

Yes you can. There is a very easy route from Keswick. The footpath map is available from the Tourist Information office.

Hi and the walk from Keswick to Castlerigg is up quite a steep hill so it may be more relaxing for you to take public transport or your own car to the monument. It is possible to park on the side of the road quite close to... More
