I am glad we were english hertigate members as we would have been very disappointed to have paid to come in here. The slopes up to the cave were very steep and hard going. We couldn't go in the keep because work was being done...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 on the path so you can take a break). Castleton is a lovely village - have fun (We also enjoyed Speedwell Cavern if you like caves).
