This is one of the cheaper National Heritage sites as I think there is a little less castle remaining than others I have visited. Apparently the castle had been in disrepair for 500+ years so there has not been as much building-restoration possible. The keep...More

I thought that the entrance fee of £6.20 was, as is the pathway up, a little steep. However, this is an atmospheric place and it's well worth the short climb for the view. The information boards are fairly informative and there are plenty of photo...More

The castle is now mostly ruined but worth a visit. The remains are being preserved by the local heritage. The entry fee is 6.20 pounds for adults and opening time for the castle is 10 am.

It is a very steep hill to climb up to the castle. There is only a keep there, and a few extra bits including information panels. There were fabulous views over the village, across the valley to Mam Tor and of Cavedale.

The path to Peveril is steep and a tiring, but the rewards are great. What a view! You can see halve the Hope Valley, at a clear day. Because you're automaticly drawn to the views on the valley you tend to forget there's a castle...More

As there's no car park your best option is the main car park in Castleton, where it's £1 for one hour, which is all you're really going to need to visit the castle on its own. The climb from the ticket office will take nearly...More

Hi, I would say approximately 90 minutes will do. There's not much to see in the castle but the views are great. It's quite a steep walk up to the castle but you can take your time getting up there (there are some benches... More

£5.10 each without gift aid and £5.70 each with gift aid but English Heritage members are free and I believe there was a 2 for 1 offer in some magazines.
