It is a steep climb up to the castle but the view is worth it. It is quite expensive to go in (English Heritage) but the money goes to conserve the place.

Peverill Castle, set above the quaint Peak District town of Castleton, offers a pleasant combination of stunning views and medieval history. The walk up is rather tiring (mainly due to my lack of fitness), but is very adequately compensated for by the breathtaking vistas. The...More

As a member of English Heritage, and living nearby, we often visit this ruin with our grandchildren. While there is not a lot left of the castle besides the keep and low surrounding wall, the location is rather spectacular, with views into Cave Dale, towards...More

Its a relatively short uphill climb to reach the castle. Its not very expensive to go up and see the castle. Only cost £6.20 per adult which included gift aid. Money goes to the up keep of other heritage sites, so its pretty cheap when...More

Not for anyone with mobility problems as the walk up to the ruin is quite steep. The ruin itself is very interesting but for me the best bit was the spectacular scenery, Don't forget you're camera. Beautiful views from every angle.

At the entrance, you head upstairs before walking out to the path up to the castle. The centre has some interesting displays explaining about the castle’s history;,these continue as you head up a zig-zag path towards the tumbledown keep. It’s a nice touch, as the...More

English Heritage, so worth the money as they do a great job. Castle high up on the hill in Castleton, it is a trek up the hill but so worth the hike, even in the rain. Worth a visit just for the view, would be...More

Having read the previous reviews we were prepared for a bit of a hike, we were surprised to find the walk up to the Castle not as steep as we expected, there were elderly people with sticks managing the walk and there are a couple...More

Locals say the walk was a bit hard, but only moderate fitness is necessary. Its doesn't take 10 minutes to get to the top. The "castle" is only the ruins of "the Keep" but the views are sensational.

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
