We parked in the paid car park at the visitor centre in Castleton and walked up to the castle. Follow the signs. There are no toilets so go at the visitor centre first. The walk up from when you leave Peveril Castle visitor centre is...More

A (very) steep climb takes you up to a very interesting and well informed Norman castle. The views from the top are worth the effort all in all very good

Lovely castle to visit if you’re in the area. But if a steep climb to the top but the views are worth it! The castle grounds itself aren’t big and the ground is very hilly and uneven so not wheelchair or pram friendly.

The castle is a ruin with one tower. That’s it. But it does have amazing views. The zigzag climb to the top was exhausting on a hot day with no shade. Does have benches along the way but unless you are fit don’t bother! Think...More

Regular fell walkers will find it easy but it is fairly steep so old men like me check it out first. Wonderful views of the whole valley - wonderful

The remains of the castle have almost gone except for the wall and the Keep. It's also not a castle used for defence rather one used for local governance. After the steep climb (good for the cardiovascular), the views are very good

Firstly, Peveril Castle isn't a true castle in the usual sense of the word. It was a small, fortified keep used as a local centre of governance and the lord and his family slept in outbuildings. Nevertheless, it is an imposing structure, towering as it...More

My friends and I were passing through Castleton and stopped for some lunch. On seeing the castle we decided to go up and see the views and we were glad we did. After paying, you go through a little area providing history of the castle...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
